Germany thanks Cup heroes
Hundreds of thousands of Germans waving flags of black, red and gold gathered at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate on Sunday to pay tribute to their World Cup team, who clinched third place with victory over Portugal.
Fans held placards saying "You are the world champions of our hearts" and "We're proud of you" as the players waved to the crowd under blue skies and bright sunshine.
