Soccer took a slight detour on Sunday as France beat Croatia 4-2 to win the FIFA World Cup. Yesterday's match was France's third final in 20 years, and their second win. The victory meant that Didier Deschamps became only the third person in history to win the World Cup as both a player and a manager.

Unlike the French players who had to celebrate in the Russian rain, the weather in Paris was perfect for a party. After their semi-final win against Belgium, so many fans climbed onto the city's buses that the local police decided to ban buses from traveling through Paris on the day of the final. But that hardly stopped the thousands of fans who gathered after the full-time whistle from finding a moving vehicle to leap on top of well into the night.


If it's not too soon, here are some photos of happy-looking Parisians celebrating France's World Cup win.
