    Fans clambered down from a bridge in Buenos Aires and dropped onto the bus as it passed underneath – before chaotic scenes became distressing ones.

    And security forces stepped in to end the parade due to growing safety fears.

    Some reports suggested up to four million people had gathered to hail their heroes.

    A spokesman for the Argentina FA said: “The players of the Argentine soccer team ended the festivities by flying over in a helicopter over the crowd of fans who gathered in the city.

    “They made that decision after verifying that they could not continue advancing by bus in the middle of the crowd.”
