A controlled explosion has reportedly taken place outside France's team hotel on the day of the Euro 2016 final.
Didier Deschamps' side will take on Portugal on Sunday evening, but their preparations got off to far from an ideal start.
According to eyewitness and Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol, police had to close the road outside France's team hotel after a suspicious package was found just a matter of metres away from the squad bus.

Bomb disposal experts then arrived and quickly dealt with the situation.
The road has since been reopened and the French team are now making their way to the stadium, which is just thirty minutes from the site of the controlled explosion.
Euro 2016 has been a tournament with an atmosphere of tension like no other, with security fears particularly prevalent in the capital, Paris.
The final will, of course, be taking place at the Stade de France, the scene of the beginning of November's atrocities in the city.
On that night, France and Germany's players were fortunately unharmed, but it raised concerns about the security measures at games nonetheless.
France will be hoping victory in tonight's game can bring some much-needed unity to the country.
