Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson has reportedly revealed a new-look pink moustache in aid of charity.

The left-armer, who has terrorised England batsmen with 34 wickets to propel Australia to a 5-0 Ashes series whitewash, grew the distinctive Mexican-style moustache before the series to promote the Movember men's health (external) charity.

According to the BBC, Johnson's moustaches have been dyed pink as part of the Glenn McGrath Foundation campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer.

The report mentioned that this is the sixth year in which the annual Sydney Test match has featured the colour pink, to raise funds for the charity, (external) founded by the former Australia bowler and his late wife Jane, who died aged 42 in 2008.

Stumps for the Test match were pink and both the Australia and England players donned special pink caps for pre-match photographs, the report added.
