Newly crowned champion of Europe, Spain touched down in Madrid to ramp up the country's Euro 2012 party.

After beating Italy 4-0 in Kiev on Sunday night, the Spanish contingent flew home on Monday afternoon to a rousing reception in the capital.

Captain Iker Casillas and manager Vicente del Bosque proudly paraded the trophy as they stepped off their flight at Barajas airport.

Spain became the first country to win three major trophies in succession thanks to Sunday's epic win.

Del Bosque's men destroyed Italy in the final of Euro 2012 in Kiev last night to become the first team to win three successive major international tournaments, including the World Cup.

Torres came off the bench to score the third goal in a 4-0 hammering as Spain added another European title to their Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010 crowns.
Torres spent much of the tournament on the sidelines as Spain played for long periods without a recognised striker, with Cesc Fabregas deployed as their most advanced player.

But he finished the campaign with three goals and, courtesy of his assist for Juan Mata's fourth, the Golden Boot.
