Several thousand Paris St Germain fans headed to Paris' Champs Elysee avenue on Tuesday night, setting off flares and fireworks as they celebrated their team reaching the Champions League final for the first time after beating RB Leipzig.

Supporters linked arms and chanted in close-knit groups, though few in the crowd wore face masks despite a recent uptick in Covid-19 infections in France.

Large crowds also gathered outside the French champions' Parc des Princes stadium, while Parisians lined up in and outside clubs to watch the game.

PSG clinched a 3-0 win over Leipzig at the match held in Lisbon. They will meet either Olympique Lyonnais or Bayern Munich in Sunday's final.
