Fútbol: celebran los griegos
Griegos celebrando
El triunfo de Grecia sorprendió a más de uno.

The people of Athens and other cities and towns across this country have partied throughout the night in what's been the biggest celebration in Greece for decades.

This report from Richard Galpin.

At the beginning of this tournament no-one in their wildest dreams had ever imagine their team would hold the cup aloft at the end of the final match. It was a major step forward for the national team just to qualify for the tournament and go to Portugal.

Now not only has Greece won the final, but on the way it's beaten some of the best teams in Europe, including the former champions, France and the Czech Republic. It's a total transformation for a team which had been regarded as something of a joke even by its own fans.

When the players and coach arrive back later today they'll be greeted as national heroes and feted at another huge celebration in the stadium where the first modern Olympics were held more than a hundred years ago.
