Fake tanning can be a tricky business, particularly if you're trying to ensure a natural, streak-free look. 

But as one teenager recently discovered, there are many more potential mishaps to be faced when you try and mix a fake tanning session with a good workout. 

Eve Mallon, from Falkirk, Scotland, took to Twitter to reveal that she was embarrassingly left with the word 'Adidas' imprinted on one leg after the logo of her workout leggings awkwardly rubbed off her self tanner, leaving her with a very pale pattern down one calf.
