Ireland f,ans change a tyre for a French couple in Paris

Outside the Moulon Rouge stuck in traffic was not a place you wanted to be on Monday as thousands of Irish fans partied before the clash against Sweden.

But it got worse for an elderly French couple when they got a flat tyre! Luckily for the pair, big-hearted Ireland fans were there to lend them a hand and quickly get them back on the road.

The video of the Irish helping the couple was posted on Newstalk's Facebook page and epitomises the fun and friendliness the Irish have brought to Euro 2016.
