According to a study by Swedish and USA researchers, people who are under 65-years-old and get less than five hours sleep on the weekend had an increased risk of death. It found that people who regularly slept about five hours or less a night, including on weekends, saw a higher mortality rate - the likelihood of death during the study period - compared with those who regularly got seven hours.

Inadequate sleep has always been proven as a trigger and cause for mental and physical illnesses and even leading to an early death. According to Torbjörn Åkerstedt, co-author of the study, these findings suggest that weekend sleep can supplement weeknight's rest, allowing your body to get the sleep it needs for good functioning.

However, people who slept for short amounts of time during the week, but compensated for it by sleeping in on the weekends, displayed normal rates of mortality. What is your average amount of sleep per week?

Not to be outdone, Corden rolled up a sleeve and displayed his "ink": Levine's mug over a scroll with his former group's name. Corden was caught off guard. "Just because you caused a traffic hazard", the officer responds.

"Apparently, sleeping in in on the weekends can be a real help", Akerstedt told CNN.

The study considered factors such as sex, weight, physical activity, smoking, stress at work.

The team pointed out that they only assessed individuals aged 65 or under, not bearing the sleeping habits and mortality rates of those older in mind.

He added that Red Bull had more to prove before he could be a contender. "We set a statement on Thursday, we've been quickest every session".

Researchers at Stockholm University and the Karolinska Institute - which is Sweden's most acclaimed medical university - have published a new study that links sleeping in on the weekend to living a regular lifespan.

Of the subjects, it was found that people who slept for less than eight hours during the week and weekend had a higher mortality rate. The researchers believe that as we age, our need for sleep decreases.
