Appearing blurry eyed, Kelly emerged with her partner Scott Moore, who was wearing an England shirt with her surname on.

When asked how last night went, she simply replied that it was “amazing”.

She said at this stage FA instructions prevented her from talking further, but said she would be able to say more later.

She added: “Sorry I can’t say anymore but will later.”

Chloe looked happy with her partner as they put belongings in their car.

Other players have also emerged from the hotel this morning.

Goalkeeper Hannah Hampton was dancing as she left photographed by the media.

Defenders Millie Bright and Alex Greenwood also appeared flanked by FA officials and politely declined to comment.

England captain Leah Williamson received massive cheers from dozens of fans as she emerged from the team hotel holding the Euro trophy.

Wearing a red beanie hat, Leah struggled to lift the silver trophy above her head.

Dozens of young children, many in England shirts, watched in awe as Leah held the trophy up. 

The head of Women’s football at the FA Baroness Susan Campbell said many of the players – and manager – were ‘”worse for wear” and had just two hours sleep following the post match celebrations.

She said: “I think the party went on too long and lasted into the night. It ended about 4am. All the players, their families and friends were there. It was wonderful.

“It was a wonderful evening that went on far too long.”

Campbell said the victory would prove an inspiration to a generation of young girls.

She added: “The joy, the happiness and brilliance of the players and absolute brilliance Sarina made it all worth it. She is an exceptional human being.”

Speaking about the late night party, one hotel guest added: “When they arrived last night it was an amazing atmosphere.”

The guest said the bash went on until 4am, meaning they’ve had just a few hours sleep.

They added: “Everyone was so pleased, it was fantastic. They were on such a high.”

David Williamson, 52, proud father of captain Leah, 25, told The Sun that the atmosphere  last night was “amazing…the girls were obviously enjoying it, just fantastic really”.

He said: “We’re very happy…all the girls just, I think they know that they kind of created history, I guess, and I think they enjoyed it last night.
