The final was delayed by more than 30 minutes after police officers forcefully held back people trying to enter the ground. Riot police sprayed teargas on fans, including women and children. Lallement apologised to fans from the UK and Spain, as well as to the people of France, for the night that he declared ‘was obviously a failure, since people were pushed around or attacked even though we owed them security’.
