ALISHA LEHMANN received a cheeky request from a fan who asked her for her shirt after playing for Switzerland at the Women's World Cup.

The Aston Villa star is hugely popular figure and boasts the most Instagram followers of any Swiss sports star, including Roger Federer.

The 24-year-old has over 13million followers on the social media site and has also been named sport's most fancied star.

During the 2-0 win over the Philippines, in which Lehmann came on as a substitute, a fan held up a sign asking for the forward's shirt.

Lehmann is known for her good looks and she made history this week by becoming the first female cover star for SWM magazine.

She is now the biggest commercial star in women's football.

Villa’s Alisha Lehmann turns into a ‘real-life Barbie’ in very short pink dress

Lehmann shares her adventures, travels, bikini photos and enviable lifestyle with her fanbase, although she had to tell her mum to ignore comments on her posts because of internet trolls.

Astonishingly, it is estimated her branded posts are worth as much as £241,314 to her.

She often shares stunning photos on social media and recently dressed up as a real life barbie.

But Lehmann is keen to remind fans she is a footballer and made it clear that football takes priority over everything else.

She said: "Some people just see Instagram and social media and don't even know I actually play football, when I don't post a football picture for a week, people say, 'Oh she doesn't even play'.

"I think sometimes it's a bit hard because obviously I train every day, like everyone else, I play every weekend and sometimes it's hard because they make a picture of you.

"I'm a proper footballer. I work hard every day. I want to be the best version of myself in football and that's my first priority in life."
