Colombian women's cycling team causes stir with unfortunate 'naked' jersey design

Kit reveals for women's cycling competitions in Italy are not usually highly-watched affairs — but a Colombian team this weekend managed to cause excitement with what seemed to be a very revealing outfit.

The otherwise conservative kit features a large patch of flesh coloured cloth across the women's lower torsos and groins, giving the impression of a cut-out revealing bare flesh.

The Colombian team — which is backed by the South American country's ministry of sport and is sponsored by the capital city of Bogota — were wearing the outfit to take part in a cycling competition in Italy.

The outfit for non-cyclists appeared not to feature the design — which meant that only the women who work as part of the team seemed to be sporting it.

Among the least favoured shirts of recent years was Everton's away strip. The design was a continuation of the previous season's black and pink away strip - just with a lot more pink involved

Christmas jumper? Liverpool's away kit last season was heavily criticised by fans on forums and social media after it's release. It would have gone down as a classic had they won the league

Just like that novelty shirt you brought on holiday years ago and thought was hilarious but soon realised it wasn't, only this is an actually football kit.
