Researchers at the University of Copenhagen tested the quality of sperm from 340 men and found that almost half had an insufficient amount - linked to lack of exposure to natural sunlight or time in a solarium.

"Vitamin D levels were positively associated with sperm motility, suggesting a role for vitamin D in human sperm function," the Daily Mail quoted Dr Martin Blomberg Jensen as saying.

The study has been published in the journal Human Reproduction.
