This outside broadcast for Hungarian TV was hijacked by jovial Irish fans in terrific style.

What started out as some cuddly attention from a handful of fans escalated extremely quickly.

Suddenly, the bemused reporter was being held shoulder high by scores of Irish fans.

These supporters seem more than pleased with the 1-1 result.

Some of the Irish players rated better than others, while there were some excellent pictures provided by the occasion.

Martin O'Neill's men next face Belgium, who were soundly beaten by Italy last night, in Bordeaux on Saturday at 2pm Irish time before taking on Antonio Conte's men in Lille on June 22.
