The German team showed no signs of jet-lag as they greeted adoring fans
Tens of thousands of German football fans have given a hero's welcome to the World Cup-winning team in Berlin.
The main celebrations were at the Brandenburg Gate, where players displayed the cup on a large stage while performing an impromptu dance.
Many had gathered since dawn to welcome the players who touched down from Brazil on Tuesday morning. Huge crowds lined their bus route into the capital.
It was the fourth German cup win and the first since reunification in 1990.
