The final of Euro 2020 falls during the mating season of the insects and could trigger a huge wave of flying ants in the historic game.

Adam Hart, professor of science communication at the University of Gloucestershire, told Sky News, “If conditions are right on Sunday, there can be more than three lions on shirts at Wembley and across the country.”

Sky News meteorologist Kirsty McCabe said, “Usually signals from creatures like insects are filtered out by the Met Office’s weather radar network.

“But on flying ant days the swarms are so large that they can dominate the signal.”

Flying ants have influenced major sporting events in London in recent years, with players complaining of an attack by living things during Wimbledon.

Gareth Southgate’s side won’t want any annoying distractions in their first grand final in 55 years at Wembley with England.
