Bayern Munich pay their annual visit to Oktoberfest

Just as they do every year, the Bayern Munich team have donned their finest lederhosen and congregated to celebrate Oktoberfest.

The likes of Thomas Muller, Philipp Lahm and Robert Lewandowski all turned out for the festivities, with crowds of people flocking to the bar to sample the traditional Bavarian harvest-time libations.

A toast to the German champions!

Enjoy a gallery of Bayern's big day out beginning with Carlo Ancelotti, who wriggled into his favourite pair of leather shorts for his first Oktoberfest as the club's coach.

One of the perks of being Bayern Munich manager!

Even Usain Bolt was in town to take part in the fun! Here he is with Bayern's David Alaba.

In truth, the last week has not been a great one for Bayern, given they lost in the Champions League at Atletico Madrid and then were held at home in the Bundesliga by Cologne. Still, it looks as though they've found a way to drown any sorrows they might have!

Meanwhile, Oktoberfest wouldn't be the same without the obligatory visit from Usain Bolt and the fastest man on the planet joined in the frothy fun at the weekend.

Here "Lightning Bolt," a nine-time Olympic champion, is seen enjoying the festivities.

Celebrating for a fourth straight year, the 30-year-old Jamaican also toasted his trusted doctor Dr. Muller-Wohlfahrt, a former Bayern employee for 28 years, who successfully managed to get the sprint legend fit for the Olympics.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
