Emirates on Monday tweeted a video of football fans doing an impromptu victory conga around the cabin of a plane. The dance seems to be taking place just after France's victory.

In another celebratory moment for France, Emirates unveiled a video showing an Airbus A380 flying high and painting the skies with the country’s team colours of blue, white and red with the message “Bravo Les Bleus!” (an ode to the nickname given to the French team).

While the plane is real, the colours coming from it are not. However, the video, which is only a few seconds long, is still impressive nonetheless. An Instagram post from the airline also declared: "France, you’re on top of the world!"
