Russia-bashing was on full-display, with influential Twitter handles taking a shot at President Putin, accusing him of ill-treating his guests and respected foreign dignitaries.

"It was a spectacular match, the nation is grateful, we are so proud of our golden team, they fought like lions", he said.

Mr Putin said all anti-Russia myths had collapsed following the tournament's success.

Antoine Griezmann was the standout in blue according to L'Equipe with the Atletico forward getting an eight, as fellow goalscorers Kylian Mbappé and Paul Pogba both received sevens for their contributions.

Then, as Macron and Grabar-Kitarovic walked toward the tunnel to leave the field, his heels were nearly clipped by some exuberant France players who were sliding on their bellies and their behinds across the soaked grass toward a bank of photographers beside a group of state presidents.

Croatia lost to France 4-2 in a thrilling final on Sunday.
