Extra Time: Borussia Dortmund ramp up the hijinks with deckchair stunt

The Bundesliga side continue their charm offensive on European football with a number of stunts around the English capital, bringing a party atmosphere to Wembley
Borussia Dortmund's campaign to win the support of neutrals all over the world was ramped up a notch on Friday.

The German side's official Twitter account posted a picture of a Dortmund beach towel draped over a deckchair outside Buckingham Palace, a play on the old stereotype that German holidaymakers secure the best seats by covering them in towels.

Dortmund will bring the party to London in the build-up to the Champions League final, with a yellow-and-black bus touring the city and handing out gifts, while 'guards' will don busby hats in the club's colours at all of the top tourist attractions.

BVB have provided some breathtaking moments on the pitch this season, sneaking past Malaga in the quarter-finals with two goals in stoppage time and then battering Real Madrid 4-1 in the semis (and clinging on for dear life at the Santiago Bernabeu).

But, while Jurgen Klopp's side are the underdogs for the final against Bundesliga behemoths Bayern Munich at Wembley on Saturday, they will surely be cheered on by the millions of neutrals watching on television across the globe.

The ever-entertaining Klopp has shot to prominence this season, with his touchline antics and media interviews proving to be a real winner.

And, with the club going on the charm offensive in the build-up to the game, they would surely be one of the most popular European champions of all time, not to mention the most fun.
