Doctor confirms baby boom in Iceland – nine months after win over England

Creating new humans after the greatest day in the Nordic nation's football history apparently proved a popular means of celebration

A doctor in Iceland has noted a record amount of babies born in his hospital in March, exactly nine months on from the day their national team beat England 2-1 in Nice at Euro 2016.

Asgeir Petur Porvaldsson, the doctor from Reykjavik's Landspitali University Hospital who spotted the correlation, tweeted (with accompanying winky face): “Set a record for the number of epidurals in the maternity unit this weekend – nine months after the 2-1 win over England.”

We're still awaiting the return statement from Wetherspoon's for sorrow-drowning alcohol consumed.
