Zizou the French hero

Judging by the reception Zidane received when he flew back to France, the views of some of those in Gennevilliers are echoed across the country.

About 10,000 people turned out to greet him in the Place de la Concorde, waving banners and French flags.

On the balcony of a posh hotel, he soaked up the cheers of the crowd - the warmth of the welcome banishing, perhaps for a brief moment, the torment of the night before.

He's still loved and respected by his own people. For him, perhaps that's as wonderful as winning the World Cup.
