This is the biggest set of Euro 2016 Opening Ceremony jokes you’re ever likely to find following the spectacular display based around DJ David Guetta that was put on by the French before their clash with Romania at the Stade de France on Friday night.

The colourful and noisy show was met with a mixed reaction on social media, with many simply keen for the football to get underway after what felt like quite a substantial wait in anticipation.

Whatever your thoughts, these Euro 2016 Opening Ceremony jokes are probably just as good as the real thing:
