Italy open-bus parade 'was not authorised' after Euro 2020 triumph

The Azzurri took their European Championship trophy to the streets of Rome despite seeing their original request to celebrate in the City rejected

Italy's open-bus parade following their Euro 2020 triumph "was not authorised", according to the current Prefect of Rome, Matteo Piantedosi.

The Azzurri claimed the second European Championship crown in their history after beating England on penalties in the showpiece event at Wembley on Sunday.

Roberto Mancini and the rest of his squad celebrated by taking the trophy to the streets of Rome on Monday, but it has now been revealed that they were originally denied permission to ride through the city in an open-top bus due to Covid-19 restrictions.
