In the World Cup final between France and Croatia, player Antoine Griezmann celebrated in the rudest way possible: with an emote dance from Fortnite.

Tens of thousands of Croatians gave a heroes' welcome to their team in Zagreb on Monday after the squad returned from Russian Federation following their World Cup final defeat.

Police said more than 250,000 people came out in central Zagreb and many more along the route.
