Children run more slowly than their parents

A study of millions of children around the world has found that many cannot run as fast or as far as their parents did when they were young.

Australian researchers looked at data from more than 25 million children in 28 countries.

They discovered that, when running a mile, today's children were about a minute and a half slower than their peers 30 years ago.

The authors of the study said obesity played a role.

They warned that by not getting enough of the right exercise, young people could be storing up future health problems.
