SPAIN’S footballers may have sealed their place as icons in their home country following their  European Championship triumph.

But it seems not everyone is a fan, with the alcohol-soaked revelry of some of the country’s most influential role-models leaving one drug addiction charity with a sore head.

“Players have become almost mythical forces in Spain today, especially among the young,” said Ignacio Calderon from the Foundation Against Drug Addiction, which campaigns against under-age drinking.

“They transmit their behaviour to young people and should not have been celebrating their win with alcohol.”
