Les Bleus have lifted the mood of the nation and relieved their growing stress after securing a last-gasp victory over Albania. There's a long way to get yet, but at least the French have good reason to celebrate.

It looked like being a frustrating night for Les Bleus and their legion of fans but two late goals from Antoine Griezmann and Dimitri Payet put Albania to the sword and helped relieve the growing stress and give France cause for celebration.

With their team qualified for the next round there should be more nights like this ahead, although the French will be hoping things won't be a stressful.

As the pictures and videos from the Paris fan zone show, Tuesday night began with high hopes, was then overtaken by frustration but ended in an outbreak of sheer joy. Enjoy.
