French players’ social media videos of World Cup celebrations
French World Cup winning footballers have been sharing their own footage on social media of their open top bus victory parade in Paris. A vast crowd gathered in the centre of the French capital on Monday to welcome back the champions. The team took a victory lap down the Champs-Elysees, the grand Paris avenue where hundreds of thousands had thronged since France’s 4-2 victory over Croatia in Sunday’s World Cup final. For a third day in a row, the avenue was transformed into a boulevard of pride and happiness following a Bastille Day parade of French military might on Saturday that, in hindsight, was a preview for the elation of France’s World Cup win.
