Torrox Pueblo unveiled new yellow and red umbrellas resembling the Spanish flag in the town centre earlier this week.

The umbrellas, which provide shade on Plaza de la Constitución, are a sign of support for the country's football team during the ongoing World Cup tournament.

The new umbrellas replace the multicoloured ones which had been there during the hot summer months since 2015.

The town hall said that the replacements had cost in the region of 15,000 euros to install and that they attract visitors to the town centre every year.
