With the clock ticking down to the start of the Euro 2016 final, the Stade de France was overtaken by a swarm of moths.
Referee Mark CLattenburg could be seen swatting them away as he went through his pre-match preparations for the showpiece match between France and Portugal.

As for how they got there, well, how do moths get anywhere?
Re. moths invasion at the Stade de France, the explanation: lights were left on all of last night, so the moths...did what moths do.

Clattenburg looked mightily unimpressed.
France's Adil Rami and Andre-Pierre Gignac were also attacked.
As everyone tried to think of something to do, this seemed to be the best plan anyone could come up with.
For everyone else though, it was pretty hilarious.
Thousands of moths on the pitch in Paris, then. And now all I can hear is Peter Sellers as Clouseau saying "mirth".

Moths everywhere at the Stade de France because someone left lights on. Pepe's status as the most annoying factor in the final under threat.

Let's just hope none of the players are scared of moths...
