A new Winston skin celebrating the London Spitfire's Overwatch League Season 1 victory appears to have leaked to Reddit.

The skin transforms Winston into a World War 2-era fighter pilot. He wears tiny, circular sunglasses, goggles, a flight cap, and a flight suit. His jump pack is replaced by what appears to be a small airplane.
The skin is generally colored according to the light blue and orange of the London Spitfire, with a darker cyan on the arms. On either shoulder Winston sports the London Spitfire with a star above it, indicating its championship victory.
The choice of Winston is likely a reference to star Spitfire tank Jae-hee "Gesture" Hong. Why Gesture was chosen to honor in place of other standout players such as Joon-yeong "Profit" Park is unknown.
The Overwatch League has yet to confirm a skin celebrating the Overwatch League Season 1 champions.
Season 1 MVP Sung-hyeon "JJoNak" Bang received a skin, available June 27-July 14, for his achievement.
