Whether you're a football fan or not, there's no question that yesterday's World Cup final between Argentina and France will go down as a classic.

The two teams were neck and neck at 2-2 right up until the final whistle, then they each scored a goal in extra time - leading the winner to be decided by a thrilling penalty shoot-out.

Argentina ultimately emerged the victors and now footage has emerged of the moment that Lionel Messi and his teammates won the trophy for the first time since 1986.

A cyclist pedalling down the apocalyptically-empty streets of the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires captured crowds erupting as the penalty shoot-out ended - and the sheer joy is impossible not to be moved by.

Sure, you'd get the same in every street and town in Ireland if we ever managed the same feat.

Maybe some day...
