thumbnail Hello,

La Furia Roja have arrived in Madrid, as the celebration of Spain's first world championship continues...

As reported by Marca, the Spanish national team's plane has safely touched down in Madrid's Barajas airport with the celebrations continuing as players were seen singing on the flight home in the wake of last night's World Cup success.

Received with a furore of cheers from all corners, including from the airport firefighters who greeted the players by shooting arcs of water into the air and onto the tarmac, the players filtered out of the plane. They were led by goalkeeper Iker Casillas, who hoisted the golden World Cup trophy into the air to the raucous cheers of the fans in attendance.

The team left the airport by bus and will have just enough time to eat before leaving to be received by Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero.
