Paris - The mascot for the the 2016 European football championship in France has been named Super Victor in a vote of internet users, a report says.

The name for the cartoon character boy dressed as a footballer in blue and white with a red cape and number 16 jersey was preferred to Driblou and Goalix.

The mascot made its first appearance on the pitch of Marseille's new Velodrome stadium before kickoff of France's 1-0 friendly victory over Sweden on 18 November.

In 1984, the mascot for the European Championships organised in France was Peno and the 1998 World Cup mascot was called Footix.

Euro 2016 will take place in France from 10 June to 10 July 2016.
