French Romanticism paintings and English rugby don't seem to go hand in hand, but lo and behold, O2's most recent campaign has brought the two together in a strange (and oddly beautiful) piece of art. 

Pictured outside of the iconic French art gallery, The Louvre, the piece immortalises the vital supportive role that fans play in keeping the spirit of the sport alive. The piece titled: 'Wear la Rose’, was commissioned ahead of England's face-off against France in the Rugby World Cup.
