The Place de la Nation, which features the famous The Triumph of the Republic status, was donned in Liverpool scarfs and flags.

Back on Merseyside, Concert Square was rammed from late morning as Reds fans soaked up the sun and celebrated Liverpool's attempts to win a seventh European Cup. Ranelegh Street and Mathew Street was also a sea of red.
