The internet is professing its love for the Norwegian curling team after they unveiled a Valentine's Day themed uniform.

Christoffer Svae, Torger Nergard, Thomas Ulsrud and Havard Vad Petersson donned the pants, which were hot pink and covered with rainbows, for their first match of the Winter Olympics.

It's been a tradition for Norway to wear multi-coloured pants to the Olympics since the 2010 Vancouver games.

The pants have become so popular, there's even a Facebook page dedicated to them with over 450,000 likes.

The pants didn't seem to positively impact their performance - after winning silver in Vancouver, they failed to reach the podium in Sochi in 2014, and lost their Valentine's Day 2018 game against Japan.

However they're still winners in the hearts and minds of their fans, many of whom praised the most recent pants on social media.

"My highlight of Valentine's Day will probably be the Norway men's curling team pants," one user wrote.

"Remember when I said they'd bring the fire?" another said.

"They brought the fire."
