Madrid: Football fans across Spain celebrated their country's 4-0 win over Italy in the final of the European Championship on Sunday night.

Goals from David Silva, Jordi Alba, Fernando Torres and Juan Mata gave Spain the win against the Italians in Kiev. Spain were crowned European Champions in Austria in 2008 and followed that up with the World Cup in South Africa two years ago.

Tens of thousands of fans gathered outside Santiago Bernabeu Stadium here to watch the game on giant TV screens, while there were other giant screens in Seville and Valencia.

Wednesday's semifinal win over Portugal had been the most watched programme ever on Spanish TV, as reported. When the final whistle went, it was celebration time for the country - something Spanish fans have become used to, with thousands of fans pouring out onto the streets in joy.

The team will return home Monday and will celebrate their title with the fans in Plaza Cibeles in Madrid.
