Incroyable, mais vrai!

The remarkable World Cup continues, and next week will see the unfancied England in the final.  How they have got there from the depths of despair after the defeat by South Africa, heaven only knows.

The atmosphere in Paris yesterday was electric, and this morning you had to read the newspapers to believe that it wasn’t all some sort of heady dream.

More commentary will of course follow, when we have had time to come to terms with it and recovered from the excessive celebrations!
