Viva Espana!

It's football fever in the Spanish press, after the national football team win their first world cup title. Unsurprisingly, the mood is more despondent in The Netherlands' newspapers, and elsewhere, there's lots of praise for Paul the Octopus, who kept a perfect predicting score sheet.

Spain's best selling daily newspaper, El Pais, of course leads on the footballing triumph,declaring the national side simply "Champions of the world", and featuring a photo of the squad lifting the long-sought after trophy.

La Vanguardia, another Spanish daily, analyses the team's 'machine-like' performance.

Naturally, the coverage in the Dutch press is very different in tone. The newspaper De Volksrant features a front page photograph of player Wesley Sneijder lying heartbroken on the pitch after the game.

Meanwhile, Dutch daily De Telegraaf describes the dejected scene in Amsterdam after the final whistle.

On a more upbeat note, Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper hails the performance of Paul the Octopus, who correctly predicted the outcomes of all the world cup matches.
