Moments before Italy ended Spanish dreams of winning their third consecutive European Championships, Gianluigi Buffon pulled off a superb, close-range save from Gerard Pique.

Italy counter-attacked immediately with Matteo Darmian setting up Graziano Pelle to make it 2-0 - it was a dagger to the Spanish hopes and a remarkable swing in terms of fortune.

Antonio Conte knew it too. The Italy manager's celebration was unrestrained. Conte - bound for Chelsea after the tournament - jumped on top of the dugout.

Post-final whistle, Buffon looked a man 38 going on 11.

After Italy's win against Belgium in their opening game of the tournament, Buffon ran the length of the pitch and leaped to grab the crossbar - he ended up on his arse.

After their last-16 success this evening, his celebration ended without a red face.
