Northern Ireland fans will be honoured for the way they supported their team throughout the Euros with a special award from the city of Paris. 

Mayor Anne Hidalgo, who yesterday announced that Republic of Ireland supporters would be given the medal of the city of Paris, has also now added the Green and White Army to the list too. 

"The supporters from Ireland and Northern Ireland distinguished themselves by their exemplary attitude, fair play and good mood," said Hidalgo, as she announced the award.

A statement from the mayor's office said that the official ceremony would take place within a few days, while the BBC report that Mayor Hidalgo has written to First Minister Arlene Foster to inform her that the fans had been honoured with the award.
