Thousands have gathered in Paris to congratulate France's national football team as they began their bus parade towards Champs-Elysees as it is revealed the team will be given the Legion of Honour by the state - after they won a second World Cup.

The victorious footballers landed at Charles de Gaulle Airport earlier today and are now making their way down streets of the capital in a bus towards the triumphant parade.

President Emmanuel Macron said today the victorious World Cup players will all be awarded the Legion of Honour - France's most prestigious award - ahead of their evening visit to the Elysee Palace.

No date has yet been set for the ceremony to hand over the prizes, which follow the team's 4-2 win over Croatia in Russia on Sunday.

Paris has already begun an epic clean-up operation after a million people partied late into the night along the Champs-Élysées to celebrate the country's second ever World Cup victory.
