A Venezuelan TV presenter who once stripped off to support the national team now runs a sizzling Instagram account.

Yuvi Pallares made headlines back in 2015 as a member of the presenting team on Venezuelan channel Desnudando la Noticia, which translates to 'Stripping the News' in English. During that year's Copa America tournament, the channel's teams of eight reporters stripped naked to show their support for the national team and encouraged others to join them.

Seven years on, Pallares now boasts 167,000 followers on Instagram, where she regular shares racy snaps for her fans ranging from bikini pictures on beaches and topless photoshoots.

As well as posing naked in support of the Venezuela national team, Pallares also made headlines that same year for taking off her clothes whilst reporting on Cristiano Ronaldo.

Whilst Desnudando la Noticia's Instagram account is no longer active, the channel went viral during the Copa America in 2015 due to it's unique approach to news reporting.

The channel claimed that their intentions were to empower women by having their reporters read the news whilst naked, as well as appearing nude in a promotional video before the tournament.

Pallares and her colleagues bared all in the video and called for other women to join them in stripping off to encourage the "gladiators" of the national team.

Sadly, however, for Pallares and Co, their support was in vain as Venezuela crashed out of the tournament in Chile at the group stage.

La Vinotinto finished bottom of their group on three points from their three matches, despite winning their opening match against Colombia.

Defeats against Peru and Brazil followed, though, as they missed out on qualification for the knockout stage by a single point.

The Venezuela squad for the tournament included current Everton striker Salomon Rondon and former Middlesbrough defender Fernando Amorebieta.
