Bayer Leverkusen 'crown' Chicharito Hernandez on Three Kings' Day

Bayer Leverkusen star Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez was dressed as "king" for the day as the Bundesliga club crowned their Mexican striker via Twitter in recognition of Three Kings' Day -- the Christian holiday widely celebrated in Spain and Latin America.

Hernandez's teammates Stefan Kiessling and Karim Bellarabi were also featured in the tableau of the three kings -- Baltazar, Gaspar and Melchior -- above a caption that reads: "What accomplishments will Bayer's Kings bring us?"

Club and players visited a children's hospital in Orlando on the holiday, which is observed annually on Jan. 6 and marks the day the three wise men, or magi, were said to have visited the infant Jesus after his birth, bringing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the newborn on their trip from Jerusalem at King Herod's behest.

The German club, who play twice in Orlando at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex this month: Sunday against Santa Fe (Colombia) and Jan. 13 against Internacional (Brazil), did not say where the three players are parking their camels.
