Royal Madrid: Spanish team meet King


The Spanish national football team has been celebrating its victory in the Euro 2012 championship, after beating Italy 4-0 in the final on Sunday.

Tens of thousands of people flocked to a square in the capital Madrid to cheer the team, the first to win three major international tournaments in succession.

King Juan Carlos received the team at Madrid's Zarzuela Palace before they began a parade in an open-top bus.

The parade ended in a victory rally in the central Plaza de Cibeles.
