Paris was lit up in blue, white and red on Sunday as the city celebrated France's World Cup win with light shows at its most iconic monuments.
The faces of the winning team were projected on the facade of the Arc de Triomphe where tens of thousands of fans had gathered after Les Bleus' 4-2 victory over Croatia.
The slogan "Proud to be blue" was writ large over the top of the monument, along with the French cockerel - the team's symbol - and two stars, a reference to France's first World Cup win in 1998.
The Eiffel Tower was also illuminated and excited fans circled the streets honking their car horns well into the night.
