Tens of thousands of Icelanders gathered in the capital Reykjavík to welcome home the nation's football team after their Euro 2016 quarter-final.

Led by drummers, the players made their way through the city in an open-top bus to the hill of Arnarholl, where fans greeted them with wild cheers.

Iceland's first major tournament ended on Sunday when the tiny nation, one of Europe's smallest, lost to France.

But not before they had dumped out the England side in the round of 16.
