(World Cup) German team returns to huge fan party
(07-15 18:16)

Germany's World Cup-winning team has returned home to celebrate the country's fourth title with huge crowds of fans.
The team's plane touched down at Berlin's Tegel Airport on Tuesday after flying a lap of honor over the "fan mile'' in front of the landmark Brandenburg Gate.
It was about an hour behind schedule, its departure from Rio de Janeiro delayed after a luggage truck hit the plane and damage to the paintwork had to be inspected.
From the airport, the team will drive to the Brandenburg Gate, making part of the trip on an open truck. The "fan mile'' started filling up hours before the arrival, with some waiting overnight to get a place at the front.
