Fired up: Will Grigg

Northern Ireland's Euro 2016 campaign may be over but the Green and White Army has left its musical mark on France.

The unofficial Northern Ireland anthem Will Grigg is on Fire started in Belfast but proved so catchy that even other country's supporters started singing it.

At one stage it even entered the top ten of the UK charts, and inspired a new computer game.

The song has gone on to outlive Northern Ireland's attempt to become European champions, and it is even being sung by a choir in Paris ahead of the grand final between France and Germany.

Wigan Athletic Football Club chairman David Sharpe captured this video footage of the choir in Paris belting out none other than Will Grigg's on Fire.
