Tesco and Co-op will shut shops early on Sunday to let staff watch the Euro 2020 final while Iceland and Lidl have said they will open later on Monday as Boris Johnson hints there will be a new Bank Holiday if England win - but it is unlikely to be this Monday.

Several stores across the country will adjust their opening times to give workers the opportunity to watch the final clash, Sky reports.

Tesco Express will close all 1,600 stores at 7.45pm, as opposed to the usual midnight closing hours, as will 2,034 Co-op stores. Co-op 24-hour petrol stations will close between 7.45pm and 11pm for the game.

In addition, Lidl revealed it will open its stores an hour later on Monday if England are successful on Sunday night.

Whether England win or lose in the final, supermarket Iceland has announced delays to opening hours, home deliveries, and meetings on Monday.

There will be no home deliveries on Sunday after 7pm, allowing the Iceland delivery drivers time to get home in time for the big match and store managers have also been encouraged to open later, allowing their teams time to finish their celebrations before heading in on Monday morning. 

All non-essential meetings at the company's head office on Monday morning have been rescheduled and teams based in the Deeside HQ will be allowed a lie-in.
