Most popular Bavarians

Having impressed in Tuesday's Champions League victory at Arsenal, Bayern Munich, who enjoy a record 15-point lead in the Bundesliga, are also proving to be Germany's football champions of social media.

Bayern are by the far the most popular of Germany's 18 top-flight teams on Facebook with just over six million fans, nearly three times as many as nearest rivals Borussia Dortmund.

But the Bavarians' international popularity pales compared to their European rivals with Spain's giants Barcelona claiming 40.5m Facebook fans and the English Twitter feed alone has eight million followers.

Likewise, Real Madrid have 36m Facebook fans and 6.8m followers to their Spanish Twitter feed.
