Euro 2016: A swarm of moths has taken over the Stade de France before the final


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?

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.

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