BERLIN (AFP) - Germany fans have bought more than three million of the white shirt Joachim Loew's side wore when they won the football World Cup in Brazil in July, according to a report Sunday.

"In total, we have sold more than three million shirts since it was presented in November 2013," Adidas chief executive officer Herbert Hainer told magazine Focus.

Twice as many shirts have been sold compared to the 2006 World Cup hosted by Germany.

The latest edition of the jersey, with the fourth star above the German Football Association (DFB) logo, has been a "big seller" before Christmas, added Hainer.
