Tournament favourites France were left in tears following last night's 1-0 extra time defeat to Portugal in the final in Paris with players and fans alike left heartbroken at the final whistle.

Footage has emerged on one inconsolable French fan in tears following the match. Watch as a young Portugal fan approaches the man to offer his commiserations. This is simply beautiful.
