Euro 2020 opened emphatically with a moving rendition of Nessun Dorma, one of football’s most famous songs, as Italy extended their unbeaten run to 28 games with a stunning 3-0 victory on Turkey.

Ciro Immobile doubled Italy’s lead in the 66th minute, with the Lazio forward cleverly returning the ball after Ugurcan Cakir fought off Leonardo Spinazzola’s effort.
