The World Cup-winning French team returned home to a heroes' welcome Monday, parading down the Champs-Elysees as hundreds of thousands of cheering fans gave a raucous welcome to the country's newest idols.Millions of fans in France then celebrated into the night, honking car horns and flying the tricolor flag while the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe were lit up in the national colors of blue, white and red.As the celebrating players descended on an open-air bus under heavy police guard – some of the 2,000 officers deployed in the capital – nine jets from the Patrouille de France, the air force's acrobatic unit, did an honorary flyover trailing blue, white and red smoke.Macron has already promised the Legion of Honor for the victors' "exceptional services" to the country, an award already given to the legendary team that won France's first World Cup title in 1998 .Macron will be relieved that joyous and occasionally chaotic celebrations across France Sunday night passed off without any major incident following a string of terror attacks in France since 2015 that have claimed nearly 250 lives.
