Over 3,000 people are reported to be attending Macron's reception for the World Cup winners, including an estimated 1,000 youth players from football clubs across France.

The first Arab country to host the event are planning eight new stadiums for the tournament, with one completed, two more due this year and the rest scheduled to be finished by 2021.

"We can surely be proud of how we organised this tournament", Putin said in televised comments after France's victory against Croatia.

But what oil-rich Qatar does have is fabulous wealth, enough to persuade Federation Internationale de Football Association to allow them to host even though that selection process has since been clouded by allegations of bribery. "We will do everything to ensure football can carry out its fantastic and humanitarian role of uniting people, countries and continents", concludes Putin.
