Newly-crowned European champions Liverpool returned home to a hero's welcome last weekend as hundreds of thousands of fans lined the streets of the city to celebrate the Reds' victory in Madrid.

The world watched as Jürgen Klopp's side beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the Champions League final at Estadio Metropolitano on Saturday and then witnessed the incredible scenes on Merseyside during the club's victory parade on Sunday.

Here's a selection of the best reactions from around the globe after the Reds claimed their sixth European Cup...


In host nation Spain, sports newspaper AS splashed their front page with 'Eterno Liverpool' - eternal Liverpool - and said the victory was 'the end of the Klopp curse' after six runners-up medals for the German.

In Klopp's homeland, the leading daily newspaper Bild went with a play on words of the manager's name - 'Liverpool berKlopp'd vor gluck' - which translates from German as 'Liverpool is bursting with happiness'.

French sports daily L'Equipe paid homage to the all-Premier League final with an English headline of 'God save the Reds' - a twist on God save the Queen - with a picture of Liverpool's English captain Jordan Henderson holding aloft the Champions League trophy.

Over in Italy, sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport went with 'Liverboom' - a reference to Klopp's post-match 'boom' comment that went viral after Liverpool beat Manchester City 3-0 back in 2016 - adding 'here is the sixth!'

In Egypt, Al-Shorouk newspaper declared Liverpool 'The Superheroes' and dedicated their inside story to the nation's favourite son Mohamed Salah and his '15 goal Champions League journey' with the Reds.

Fellow Egyptian outlet Youm7 had a double-page spread dedicated to the Liverpool No.11 in which they declared him a contender for the Ballon d'Or.

South Africa-based publication Soccer Laduma went with a full-page spread applauding the Reds and noted that the Liverpool quartet of Salah, Senegal forward Sadio Mane, former Cameroon international Joel Matip and Guinean midfielder Naby Keita extended the list of African Champions League winners to 24.

Meanwhile, football clubs and sports stars from around the world took to social media to offer their congratulations to Liverpool.

Klopp's former employers Borussia Dortmund were one of the first to do so and their tweet also referenced Liverpool anthem You'll Never Walk Alone, which the German club also use at the Westfalenstadion.

Five-time European Cup winners Barcelona and Bayern Munich, both of whom Liverpool beat en route to this year's Champions League final, also offered their congratulations.

NBA superstar LeBron James posted his congratulations from the USA - the Los Angeles Lakers forward is a big Reds fan.

And while a number of WWE wrestling stars had offered their predictions for the final ahead of the match, former WWE champion Sheamus went one better and was in Estadio Metropolitano to celebrate with the fans.

Meanwhile, these scenes of celebration from Liverpool supporters in the USA were repeated in venues and homes all over the planet.

And, of course, in Liverpool...
