Legendary singer #Rod_Stewart wants to build a swimming pool at his mansion in the hope that his young son will become an Olympic champion.
The rockstar's 11-year-old son Alastair has shown promise as a swimmer and has already won a host of medals.
Rod, 72, and his wife Penny Lancaster have said how Alastair has ambitions to compete for Great Britain at the Olympics - and now they want to give him a home training base, reports mirror.co.uk.
Rod has plans to build a large pool house in the gardens at Durrington House in Harlow, Essex, reports the Daily Record.
Plans submitted to Epping Forest District Council say the swimming pool will incorporate changing facilities, a bar and a dining area.
