France's Antoine Griezmann has been named Euro 2016 Player of the Tournament by UEFA.

The Atletico Madrid forward finished as tournament top scorer with six goals, including crucial doubles against Ireland and Germany in the Round of 16 and semi-finals respectively.

The 25-year-old has also been included in the Team of the Tournament, which features four members of the victorious Portuguese team, including captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, whose final was marred in the first half with a match-ending injury.

Germany have three players selected while Wales and France have two players apiece.

Portugal midfielder Renato Sanches got the Young Player of the Tournament award
