The German national football team are safely back in Frankfurt after spending the night inside the Stade de France, following six organised terror attacks that swept across Paris.

Suicide bombers blew themselves up outside the stadium during the match and the blasts could be heard on live TV. It was not until after the final whistle had blown that the players became aware of what was going on.

After arriving home, German defender Mats Hummels Tweeted that the “world is fucked up right now”.

French players were due to go home after the match, but refused to do so in a show of solidarity with their opponents, according to reports.

“The French said that they were staying as long as Germany had to stay,” said the German Football Association’s caretaker president Reinhard Rauball. “That was an outstanding gesture of camaraderie.”

German newspaper Bild also claim that reports that the team would leave the stadium with security at 2:15am was merely done “for safety reasons” and the team spent the night inside the stadium. The busses that did leave also went to collect players’ personal belongings from their hotel rooms.

Germany’s team manager Joachim Low admitted after the game that his players were scared after an earlier bomb scare had forced the squad to be evacuated from their hotel.

The German squad had been due to return to Hannover on Saturday but security fears changed their plans and a plane was sent from Frankfurt instead.
