In a touching homage to Iceland and its fans, France had a crack last night at Iceland’s now world-famous HÚ Viking clap after their 2-0 semi-final victory over Germany at Euro 2016.

It is true testimony to the wonderful Icelandic legacy to these finals that France, hosts of the competition, should use imitate Iceland after defeating the current world champions.
