Around 40 people were arrested over the riots, with police resorting to using tear gas and water cannons to control the fans, who were throwing glass bottles.

Paris police have said crowds of supporters from both sides gathered under the Eiffel Tower, before and after the match, when they were refused entry to the fan-zone, which was packed to capacity.

Shocking images of the Eiffel Tower covered in a cloud of tear gas have come forward. Those involved in the riots were also starting fires, while police in full riot gear tried to put out the fires and get the crowds back under control.

Arrests were also made outside the Stade de France, where the match was played.

In Lyon there were nine arrests for violent behaviour, possession of fireworks, or insults, the Metro reports.

The tournament, which had already seen plenty of acts of hooliganism, came to an end last night with Portugal's win over the hosts. In June, 35 people were left injured after violence broke between England and Russia fans in Marseille.
