McDonald's has launched a breakfast-themed athleisure clothing range for the Olympics

5 things you never knew about Mickey D's

McDonald's has launched a small athleisure range to celebrate the Rio 2016 Olympics, AdNews reported.

The fast food retailer has been an official sponsor of the Olympics since 1976.

The range, dubbed "Legendswear," ties in with one of its marketing tagline for this year's event: "We're for Legends."

It includes a $70 (Australian dollars) hooded vest top and a $50 (Australian dollars) pair of track pants, daubed in a floral pattern that subtly mixes in some of its popular breakfast items. McDonald's partnered with Australian sports fashion brand We Are Handsome to produce the clothes.

The sponsorship activation has been led by McDonald's Australia division and unfortunately for fans of the garments outside the country, the Legendswear eBay store states that the items will only be posted within Australia.

All proceeds will be donated to Ronald McDonald House charities, which provide housing close to children's hospitals.

Here's how McDonald's, which is affectionately referred to as "Maccas" in Australia, has been promoting the stunt.

10 money-saving fast-food hacks

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order two four-piece nuggets instead of one six-piece. It’s cheaper, you get more nuggets and you get more sauces. Score.

Hack: Order a McDouble without the ketchup and mustard but with lettuce and Big Mac sauce. You'll pay for the Big Mac taste for the price of a McDouble.

Restaurant: Chipotle

Hack: Order half of one protein and half of another kind (like chicken and steak). You’ll almost always get more than half of each and end up with up to 1.5x the protein in your burrito or bowl for the price of a normal portion.

Restaurant: Arby’s

Hack: Order two junior roast beef sandwiches instead of one regular classic. You'll end up with more meat for a lower price.

Restaurant: Jamba Juice

Hack: Substitute any ingredient in any smoothie for the same price. If you’re craving a smoothie with non-fat yogurt instead of mango, or extra strawberries instead of blueberries, customize it to your liking without any extra charge. It will save you more than being charged for creating your own smoothie from scratch.

Restaurant: Jack in the Box

Hack: Order two Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers and combine them into one for a much cheaper version of a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger.

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order a sausage McMuffin off of the dollar menu but ask for the sausage to be substituted with egg—an egg McMuffin for a dollar.

Restaurant: Any pizza place

Hack: When you call to order delivery, ask if there were any orders that weren’t delivered—the pizza place will often give you those orders for a discounted price (perfect if cold pizza is your thing.)

Restaurant: Subway

Hack: Order a Double Steak and Cheese Sub instead of the Philly Cheese Steak Sub—you’ll get the same sandwich at a normal foot-long price.
