A million people turned out to watch as Spain celebrated their World Cup win in Madrid. It's the first time the country has won the coveted trophy.
European champions Spain scooped the title after a 1-0 win over The Netherlands in Soccer City, South Africa. The goal came in extra time.
Spain's midfielder Andres Iniesta, who scored the winning goal, gets a special thanks from his team-mates.
Everyone took turns at lifting the trophy, including striker Fernando Torres.
Pepe Reina and Carles Puyol try to put an FC Barcelona shirt on Cesc Fabregas during the celebrations. The Barcelona defenders grabbed the Arsenal midfielder, who is eager to move to the Nou Camp.
Fernando Torres celebrates with goalkeeper Pepe Reina - who couldn't resist showing off his drumming skills - and Jesus Navas.
The open-top bus went on a five-mile tour of the city and some fans even had to be hosed down by firefighters as the temperature reached 40C (104F).
The players met up with Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and the Royal Family - including Princess Leonor and Princess Sofia, who seemed impressed with the trophy.
