This morning.

In Copenhagen, Denmark.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen go for a cycle during a ‘working lunch’.

Mr Varadkar is in the middle of a two-day trip to Stockholm, Sweden and Copenhagen for talks with his Swedish and Danish counterparts.

It’s not a caption competition…unless you insist.

Havnegade in Copenhagen, Denmark

This afternoon.

It has been reported that the body of an Irish football fan was recovered at Havnegade, a waterfront area in the centre of the city of Copenhagen, Denmark.

It comes ahead of Ireland playing Denmark in the city of Aarhus tonight.

In a statement, the FAI has said:

The FAI has expressed its condolences to the family of the supporter, who passed away in Copenhagen, ahead of the UEFA Nations League game between Denmark and Ireland.

An official request has been submitted to UEFA, by the FAI, to hold a minute’s silence before kick-off in tonight’s game in Aarhus.

The Ireland players will wear black armbands in respect of the supporter.

The FAI continues to work with An Garda Síochána and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade on the matter.

The newly opened Cirkelbroen Bridge across the Christianshavn canal in Copenhagen, Denmark designed by Olafur Eliasson.

With a nod to the city’s nautical history in the form of tall mast like structures, the five circular platforms of the structure are designed as a meeting place and viewing place as well as a crossing point.
