England star Chloe Kelly abandoned her interview with the BBC to jump back into the midst of the celebrations and sing Sweet Caroline.
The Lionesses beat the Germans 2-1 at Wembley and it was Kelly who bagged the winning goal for her side in extra-time to give England their first major trophy since 1966. After the final whistle blew, Sarina Wiegman's side ran out across to the fans in adulation.
And BBC Sport wanted to conduct an interview with the match-winner Kelly, but she could hardly articulate her words when she was behind the camera. When she was asked how she was feeling, she said "Oh my god, look at them [the fans]. It's amazing, honestly. Thank you every single person that has come out to support us. This is unreal."

But as soon as Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline reached its climax, Kelly started singing and then ran out towards the rest of the squad, in what has to be one of the interviews of the year.
Viewers at home reacted to the off-the-cuff interview. One said: “Absolute fair play to Chloe Kelly for ditching the microphone during Sweet Caroline, no one should be asked to do a post-event interview so soon afterwards. Get in you legends!!”
Another said: “I think Chloe Kelly has just given one of the finest interviews ever put on BBC TV. She screamed something incomprehensible, began singing Sweet Caroline and then ran off with the microphone. Can't fault her.”
A last one said: “Chloe Kelly abandoning an interview to do Sweet Caroline with her team mates is my ja."
At Wembley, Ella Toone gave Sarina Wiegman's side the lead in the second-hald. Then Lina Magull forced extra time leveller before Kelly scored a 110th-minute winner.
Kelly signed for Manchester City two years ago and has excelled ever since. She broke her ACL in 2021 sideling her for a considerable period – but she luckily made it to the Euro 2022, coming off the bench to secure England a huge win.
