Cuba's greatest sportsmen and women will be marching in strong to the Olympic Games arena, decked from head to toe in Christian Louboutin.

Christian Louboutin has just revealed Team Cuba's uniforms for the Rio Olympic Games, which he's designed in collaboration with SportyHenri.com, a leading online French fitness wear brand. 

Speaking about the designs, Louboutin says: "It's that elegance and fluidity of movement of someone who is so in control of their body that fascinates me. At the Olympics, it feels like these athletes put on performance gear and simultaneously turn into these superheroes that defy gravity, that defy time, that defy all rules of physics. We designed the celebratory outfit for the moment they turn back into humans, still in that glory moment, still in their light but heading back to the real world. We really want them to continue feeling amazing in their skin while looking astonishing."
