France cruised to their first major basketball title on Sunday after thrashing three-time champions Lithuania to win the European Championships in Slovenia.

France started to edge away from their rivals in the second period and were never again threatened as they stormed to an 80 – 66 victory.

Tony Parker – who has won three NBA titles with the San Antonio Spurs – was awarded the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.
