German footballer Marco Reus visited the Nuremberg Toy Fair today to show off his custom Hot Wheels car.

The 23-year-old Borussia Dortmund and German national team star presented the model to the press at Mattel's stand.

His Hot Wheels car, MR11, was created in conjunction with a Hot Wheels vehicle designer.

The car miniature has a "sporty-confident front, strong-looking tail and extra-large wheels"

Marco Reus said: "Back when I was a child, playing with my collection of Hot Wheels vehicles, I never could have imagined that my initials and shirt number would one day stand for a vehicle model."

The MR11 model hits shelves this autumn.

Last week Spurs footballer Clint Dempsey was at the London Toy Fair to promote SoccerSuckers.
