There’s something about the Olympics. It’s not the winning, it’s the taking part that counts. Every athlete is equal as an Olympian. And countries attire their competitors in the naffest gear. This is the horrific garb the likes of Juan Mata, Jordi Alba, and Javi Martinez will be wearing for Spain. All together now, ‘De de de de de, we’re hating it.”
Spanish canoeist Saul Craviotto and hockey player Alex Fábregas posted pictures of the much ridiculed get-up online this week.
The Spanish team kit was supplied free of charge by the aptly named Russian company, Bosco. You’d be forgiven for thinking they purposely wanted to make Spain look like muppets until you saw Team Russia’s own design.
While Giggsy and Team GB don’t get off lightly either. Awful stuff.
