In their latest good news story, Irish fans sang 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' to a baby while on a train in Bordeaux.

What makes the impromptu lullaby rendition even more impressive was that it came after Ireland's disappointing 3-0 loss to Belgium.

While it would be easy for the baby's parents to fear for the worst, the Irish supporters have shown on numerous occasions throughout EURO 2016 that jolly, not hooligan, fanfare is the best way for football fans to enjoy the tournament.

Irish fans serenading hasn't stopped with babies though, as a fortunate French girl found out.

While this rendition of Frank Sinatra's 'I Love You Baby' ultimately wasn't in tune, she seemed to see to funny side of it.



Ireland's fun off the field was also evident after their side's Match Day 1 draw with Sweden, where fans jovially mobbed a Hungarian reporter in an hilarious moment full of banter.
