The cha-cha's mighty -- even police agree

IN the early hours of Wednesday morning, Irish fans were squeezing the last bit of craic from their night out at the Carlsberg fanzone in Gdansk.

Trying to drop subtle hints it was time to go home, the local police pulled the paddywagon up and started flashing its lights.

Such action might be a red rag to other supporters, it could ratchet up tension and cause ugly encounters. So what did the Irish do?

Only formed a conga line and danced around the Paddywagon while chanting "Let's all do the cha-cha, let's all do the cha-cha, la la la la."

Even the police laughed.
