The Green and White Army has been awarded the Medal of the City of Paris for supporting Northern Ireland at Euro 2016.

The honour “pays tribute to their exemplary attitude that participated in making this tournament a great popular event”.

The date of the medal ceremony is to be announced in the coming days.

It follows the news that Republic of Ireland fans are also being awarded for their sportsmanship in backing the team’s progress in France this summer.
