Real Madrid wear green kit to raise climate change awareness

Real Madrid are hoping that the world takes notice of the fact they are wearing green rather than white today...

The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.

Jump to: Mbappe gets his own Nike trainers | Mourinho misses out on AJ fight

Real Madrid have broken with tradition to wear green shirts against Espanyol at the Bernabeu this weekend.

Eschewing their famous white strip, Real went "green" (by wearing their third kit) to help raise awareness of the city's Castellana Verde initiative.

Real Madrid have thrown their support behind the Castellana Verde ("Green Zone"), a series of ecologically conscious events and activities taking place in Madrid as part of the 25th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25).

The club have also unfurled a huge 36x20-metre "eco banner" at the Bernabeu that will greet matchgoing fans and will remain in place until the Madrid climate change conference ends on Dec. 13.

Mbappe gets his own Nike trainers

Cementing his arrival as a pop culture icon, Kylian Mbappe has been furnished with his very own pair of signature Nike sneakers.

Featuring the PSG star's "KM" logo, the new Air Max 98 trainers are reportedly the first offering from what may well end up being a full Mbappe collection.

The original Air Max 98 trainer was released in the year Mbappe was born, so it seems fitting that his personal model be based on it while featuring contemporary "urban camo" colourway.

There are also several other nods to the 20-year-old striker, including the French flag and No. 93, in reference to the administrative number of the Seine-Saint-Denis arrondissement of Paris (nicknamed "The 93") where Mbappe grew up.

Mourinho misses out on AJ fight

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he gave up the chance to go to the big boxing bout this weekend, Anthony Joshua vs. Andy Ruiz 2 in Saudi Arabia, to lead his new side Tottenham out against Burnley.

"It's the only bad thing about getting the job at Tottenham," he said. "I was invited by the prince to be there."

Jobs, eh? They really suck sometimes.
