Euro 2016 has seen plenty of fairy tales on the pitch, with Iceland and Wales taking down some of the tournament's biggest sides to prove that the extended format had its merits. 

Off the pitch, the biggest story has often centered around the fans, in particular the supporters of the Boys in Green. From changing tyres to singing lullabies to babies, the army of Irish fans were given plenty of coverage, and as such feature prominently in the video from UEFA, saluting the supporters for their role in making this tournament so special.

Along with the Green and White Army, the Welsh supporters and plenty of others, the atmosphere around France has been superb (with one or two exceptions), which this short video from the organising body highlights.
