Men who eat Greek food are better in bed, new research suggests.

Experts at Athens University have suggested that a daily Mediterranean diet, containing local delicacies such as grilled fish, salads, olive oil and feta cheese will ward off any performance issues in the bedroom.

The study, published in the journal of the European Society of Cardiology, looked at 250 men in their 50s with high blood pressure and erectile dysfunction. It found that those who stuck to a diet of fish, vegetables and olive oil had higher levels of testosterone.

The men that ate the most Mediterranean food benefited from the biggest increase in performance between the sheets.

Dr Athansios Angelis, from Athens University, said: "We found our diet was linked with healthier arteries and blood flow, higher testosterone levels and better erectile performance.

"This limits the fall in testosterone that occurs in middle age, staving off problems in the bedroom."
