France’s handball team have been greeted like heroes upon their arrival in Paris.

The ‘Experts’ met up with French President François Holande at the Elysée Palace on Tuesday, two days after becoming the first team in handball history to win five world championships with a convincing 25-22 win over Qatar in Doha.

The win means Daniel Narcisse’s team-mates are now world, European and Olympic champions, emphasising their current dominance of the sport.

It was the country’s first world title since 2011.
