The Euro 2024 clash between Germany and Denmark was temporarily halted midway through the first-half as a huge storm hit Dortmund.

English referee Michael Oliver ordered both teams off the pitch after 34 minutes with lightning flashing over the Westfalenstadion as thunder boomed across the city on Saturday night.

The last 16 tie was goalless when play was suspended. Players from both sides briefly watched on from the dugout before heading for cover inside the dressing rooms.

With torrential rain falling, the stadium, home to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, was left leaking with huge waterfalls crashing through the roof onto supporters in attendance with hail stones also lashing down.

Play was halted for 15 minuted before the storm began to ease with the match recommencing just before 9pm BST.
