Spain skipper Iker Casillas made a play to win the selfie of the year prize as he snapped his Spain team-mates in a jovial pose as they launched their new national team kit.

Spain will be defending champions in their new Adidas kit at the Euro 2016 finals in France next summer, with Casillas eager to maximise publicity at the launch event.

Selfie sticks are generally pretty horrible inventions, but one of them was put to good use here as Casillas took a photo that will doubtless be the screen saver on his phone for some time to come.
