After the France football team was crowned world champion on 15 July 2018 in Russia, its fans eagerly awaited it for several hours on the Champs Elysées the following day. When the bus finally arrived, it went so fast that no one had time to see them. Later, the fans decided to wait for the French team's greeting under the balcony of their hotel (as in 1998). But they never came.

Après que l'équipe de France de football a été sacrée championne du monde le 15 juillet 2018 en Russie, ses supporters l'ont attendue avec impatience pendant plusieurs heures sur les Champs Elysées le lendemain. Quand le bus est finalement arrivé, il est allé si vite que personne n'a eu le temps de les voir. Plus tard, les supporters ont décidé d'attendre le salut de l'équipe de France sous le balcon de leur hôtel (comme en 1998). Mais ils ne sont jamais venus.
