French Sports Minister Patrick Kanner said on Tuesday there was "no question" of cancelling Euro 2016 in France despite last week's terrorist attacks in Paris.

"The Euro will be staged in conditions of maximum security, strengthened as a result of the events which we have just lived through.

"There is no question of cancelling this great popular festival," said Kanner.
