Make-up, camera, selfie! It's photoshoot time in Czech Republic

HRADEC KRALOVE/PRAGUE (FIBA EuroBasket Women 2017) - As the teams and players all touch down in Czech Republic for the Final Round and begin their last minute preparations, we catch up with those involved.

Of course there were the usual glorious glut of airport photos in departure lounges across the continent, such as this from Latvia!

Italy went one step further and took us excitedly through the whole experience!

Spanish shooter Leonor Rodriguez has played at the FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup and the Rio Olympics, but not at the Final Round. So, ahead of her debut, she made sure every single member of the travelling party was in the photo.

Once on Czech soil, it was time for a team meal - like this one that Serbia enjoyed in the capital!

Meanwhile, many teams went to their official photo shoots and enjoyed the experience, including this French trio!

Zuzana Zirkova is just one of many legends who will use the Final Round as a swansong in national team colours and she literally got a lift from being at her team's shoot.
