A handball team celebrated their EHF Cup win by posing together naked in a shower.

The women members of Tvis Holstebro from Denmark were marking their third European trophy in the past four years.

They had defeated Russian side Lada Togliatti 30:25 and 31:27 in the two-legged final for a convincing 61:52 margin of victory in the clashes contested earlier this month.

And they marked the occasion by using just the Cup Winners Cup and their own hands to hide their modesty in a racy snap.

Super League side Lada actually took the early lead in their return clash in Togliatti, but Holstebro keeper Silje Solberg made some "great" saves to keep her side in the match.

Togliatti then failed to score for five-and-a-half minutes as Holstebro regained control and led 13:11 at halftime.

Eight of Holstebro's goals were scored by Nathalie Hagman.

She was branded the "unstoppable" Swedish left back after adding five more following the break and became the top scorer of the tournament with 75 goals.

Lada stormed back to level affairs but the superior Togliatti extended their advantage to claim the silverware yet again.
