The winning team of this year’s World Cup, Spain, has recently arrived on their homeland on Monday. The champions were met with a flurry of celebratory events such as meetings with the King, the Prime Minister and an open air bus ride around the city’s historic center.

Over hundreds of thousands of fans were expected to greet them on the capital’s streets to cheer for the team who brought Spain’s first ever World Cup win. Less than 24 hours ago, around 300,000 people gathered at the city center to party all night after Spain’s victory.

The team, who won over Netherlands by 1-0 on Sunday night, is scheduled to arrive at Madrid’s international airport at around 2:30pm local time. They are to rest at the airport’s hotel before meeting with King Juan Carlos and Prime Minister Rodriguez Zapatero.

The highlight of the events will surely be the 5-kilometer open air bus ride past Madrid’s landmarks to greet the expected cheering crowd of Spaniards donning the country’s colors red and yellow.
