Icelandic hospital gives record number of epidurals... nine months after victory over England

The famous win over the Three Lions at Euro 2016 has, perhaps unsurprisingly, resulted in a whole new generation of fans entering the world


If anyone was wondering quite how much Iceland celebrated their famous win over England at Euro 2016, we now have proof.

An Icelandic hospital administered a record number of epidurals on pregnant women giving birth this weekend - exactly nine months after the stunning result in Nice.

Lars Lagerback's team beat the Three Lions back on June 27 of last year, sparking huge celebrations among the many fans that had travelled to France as well as those watching from home.

And the parties had a predictable result: According to the Icelandic magazine Visir, pain relief was given to more expectant mothers at Landspitali hospital than ever before over the weekend of March 25 and 26.

"Set a record for the number of epidurals in the maternity unit this weekend - nine months after the 2-1 win over England," Asgeir Petur Porvaldsson, a resident at the hospital in the department of anesthesiology, posted on Twitter.

That's one way to mark the occasion.

We're guessing that England fans, however, might have had an early night.
