In a first for Real Madrid the club and sponsors Adidas have turned to the colour pink to deck out their Galaticos for away matches next season.

Pictures of Wales star Bale, Karim Benzema and Marcelo modelling the fushia away shirt were released along with images of Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos in the more traditional white home shirts.

The new strips were beamed onto the side of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Spain's capital along with the promotional slogan 'wear it or fear it'.

A spokesperson for the club said, "The second kit is even more of a break from tradition. The main colour is fuchsia, a concept never seen before in the club's 112-year history. The crest will create a unique and impressive visual impact as it is made entirely in pink and white."
