While Paris hosted the official Euro 2016 opening ceremony in Paris, with the usual mix of inexplicable performances and costumes, England fans held their own version of an opening ceremony in Marseille by fighting the locals and police alike in various states of undress.
While performers strutted around the Stade de France dressed as lips, England fans invited the people of Marseille to kiss their exposed backsides.
A tricolor flyover in Paris!
And a guy sitting in a cloud of teargas in Marseille.
And idiots throwing bottles.
The music of David Guetta!
And more teargas. (We’ll call this one even.)
It’s anyone’s guess as to what will cost more: the official opening ceremony or repairs in Marseille.
