Germany's team hotel in Paris was evacuated on Friday morning following a bomb threat, the national team's general manager Oliver Bierhoff has confirmed.

The world champions are in the capital to take on France in a friendly, with Bierhoff confirming the news to German newspaper Express.

"There was a bomb threat. The hotel has been widely cordoned off and evacuated," the former striker said.

The German squad arrived on Thursday and trained at the Stade de France - the venue for Friday's clash with the Euro 2016 hosts.

Joachim Low's side were staying at the Hotel Molitor on the Rue Nungesser et Coli.
