Yet another European sporting victory for Italy.
Italy's winning streak continues as the country adds 'European Champions in American Football' to its string of sporting successes this year.
The Italian team, coached by Davide Giuliano, beat Sweden 41 to 14 in the final in Malmö on 31 October.
The so-called Blue Team finished the first half of the game on a score of 34-0 and managed to maintain its advantage in the second half, to clinch its third European title after wins in 1983 and 1987.
