Gallery: A look back at our iconic yellow kits

Our new Nike third Kit for the 2020/21 season, which went on sale on Monday morning, has taken inspiration from our iconic kits of the past.
A traditional Spurs colour, yellow kits have been a staple of our history with us wearing 19 such strips since the late 1950s.
We first pulled on a yellow jersey in 1958. It was at the start of a ‘glory, glory ‘ period in the Club’s history as, in the years following, legendary manager Bill Nicholson led us to our famous double in 1961, two more FA Cups, two League Cups, the European Cup Winners’ Cup and the UEFA Cup, before he departed the dugout in 1974. We wore four different yellow strips under Bill Nick.
Meanwhile, the last time we headed into a season with a yellow kit was six years ago, ahead of the 2014/15 campaign - Harry Kane's breakthrough season, with our homegrown striker hitting 24 goals in just 42 appearances. We also reached the League Cup Final.
Our latest yellow strip positions our crest as well as the Nike swoosh centrally in a nod to famous past kits - most notably worn in our 1982 FA Cup triumph and during our run to glory in the 1984 UEFA Cup.
To mark the launch of our latest third kit, take a look back at some of the famous yellow shirts of our past in this special gallery below...
