Dortmund 'get their towels down early' ahead of final

Borussia Dortmund's @BVB Twitter account has made humorous reference to a German stereotype ahead of the side's Champions League final at London's Wembley Stadium this weekend.

A series of tweeted pictures shows Dortmund towels on deckchairs in front of famous London landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch and Big Ben.

Dortmund are narrow outsiders to win Saturday's final against countrymen Bayern Munich.
