England wrote their names in the record books on Sunday after winning the European Championship for the first time with victory over Germany in the final.

Chloe Kelly’s extra-time goal sealed a 2-1 win for Sarina Weigman’s Lionesses at a sold-out Wembley to spark wild celebrations that continued on Monday at Trafalgar Square in London.

Here the PA news agency takes a look in pictures at how the England squad toasted victory with fans.
