New 'four-star' Germany shirt sells out hours after win

A new German football shirt with four stars has sold out within hours of the team's fourth World Cup triumph.

Adidas' website said the shirt, costing 84.95 euros (£62), was currently not available.

The company, which is expected to get a "small extra boost" after Germany's win, later said they would be flying in new ones from China to meet the demand.

Mario Gotze's extra-time volley helped Germany beat Argentina 1-0 to win their fourth World Cup and first since 1990.
