More than 60,000 optimistic England fans have signed a petition demanding a day off if England win Euro 2020.

The petition calls for Monday to be made a Bank Holiday if the Three Lions triumph against Italy at Wembley on Sunday.

It comes as England beat Denmark 2-1 in extra time last night to secure a spot in their first major international final since 1966.

Meanwhile, England fans today face a desperate rush to book a space at a pub after Gareth Southgate's side set up what is being dubbed a 'Super Sunday' for the hospitality industry - with the Wimbledon final also due to take place on the same day.

However, Boris Johnson today appeared to pour cold water on plans for a Bank Holiday, saying it would be 'tempting fate', while one Tory MP remarked to MailOnline 'we haven't won anything yet'.
