Paris along with its arts and culture is a world sporting city. The sports range from football, rugby union, tennis, cycling, to horse racing and show jumping. The most popular sport is football in large part due to the success of the French international football team who won the 1998 World Cup and followed this up with the 2000 European Championships. These successes brought fame to many french footballers, in particular Zinedine Zidane. Another team sport which has always been popular in Paris is rugby union which although normally identified as being a southwest France sport has recently seen a resurgence in the capital with the success of the local Stade Francais CASG team. During May and June Paris hosts the French Open Tennis tournament at the Stade Roland Garros in the Bois de Bologne. The following month tens of thousands of cycling fans line the Champs-Elysees to see the last stage of the Tour de France. In october the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe horse race is run at Longchamp Racecourse, Paris and is one of the richest races in Europe.
