MADRID - The Spanish Basketball team celebrated winning the European Championship by parading the trophy through the streets of Madrid on Monday before offering it to thousands of delighted fans in the middle of the capital.

Spain defeated France 98-85 in the Lituanian capital of Kaunas on Sunday to win the trophy and end an impressive tournament in which they were defeated only once.

The Spanish side, which is coached by Sergio Scariolo, holds players such as Marc Gasol, Ricky Rubio, Rudy Fernandez and Jose Calderon who all ply their trade in the NBA.

Spain's star player Pau Gasol is currently with the LA Lakers, but it was Juan Carlos Navarro who was the hero in Kaunas. The guard scored 27 points in the final and was voted MVP of the competition.

The Spanish team carried the trophy in an open topped bus, down the central, Avenida de la Castellana and along the Gran Via, where thousands of fans were waiting

The team spent over half an Callao before making their way onto the bus and while many supporters decided to continue their celebrations.

The team is now thinking ahead to their next big task - the 2012 Olympic Games, where they hope to improve on the silver medal they won in Beijing.
