A group of female television presenters have stripped naked to film a message of support for the Venezuelan national team at the Copa America.

Eight presenters from news website Desnudando la Noticia stripped naked to send a message to Noel Sanvicente's team, who begin their campaign against Colombia on Sunday.

The presenters, who call the players 'gladiators' in their message of support, have also promised to release more naked videos if the team progresses into the latter stages.

Venezuela managed to get to the semi-finals in 2011, where they lost on penalties to Paraguay.

The presenters claim their presenting style is aimed at "empowering women".

Venezuela surprisingly won their opening match of the competition against Colombia thanks to a second-half header from Salomon Rondon.
