Now if you can't wait for England's next Euro 2016 match - you can always watch a rather unique replay of the last one...

Anglia Ruskin University student Fabian Moritz has been recreating some of the memorable moments from the tournament so far - in a lego animation.

Third-year English and Media student Fabian Moritz, aged 25, has created Bricksports, a company which recreates great sporting moments in the form of short animations with the protagonists sculpted from Lego bricks. He's even created his own lego stadium!

"Every video is a new challenge, but I always like to try new things like a new sport... It is most satisfying for me when I can sit down and watch the end result of what I have created. It makes me feel that all that effort was worth it."

A great-grandmother who scooped £1m on the national lottery with a ticket bought at a Norfolk village shop has vowed to treat herself to a new set of teeth.

Diana De Gilio, 70, retired carer who lives in New Zealand. She was in the UK to celebrate her birthday with friends and family when she discovered her life changing win.

She had popped into a village shop in Great Massingham, Norfolk, when she decided to try her luck on the EuroMillions MegaFriday draw.

"While I was in the shop I saw a poster for the EuroMillions Mega Friday Draw and asked the lady what it was about.

"Once she'd explained...I decided to try my luck by buying five Lucky Dips."

– Diana De Gilio, lottery winner

As well as treating herself to a new set of gnashers, she also plans to buy a new pair of glasses, help her family buy a house and travel the globe.
