WATCH: Are Motherwell the inspiration behind Iceland's 'volcano clap'?

Iceland's 'volcano clap' has been a memorable sound at Euro 2016 so far, but it appears they learnt the chant from Motherwell...

Iceland's 'volcano clap' is a sound England fans will probably not want to hear anytime soon, but did the Euro 2016 minnows learn the chant from a club closer to home?

Well, it appears so! 

Scottish Premiership club Motherwell unleashed their own version of the 'volcano clap' back in July 2014 when they faced Icelandic side Stjarnan in a Europa league qualifier. 

It clearly had a lasting effect on the Stjarnan fans, who learnt the chant for their club before introducing it onto the international scene with Iceland.

Iceland's co-coach Heimir Hallgrimsson toasted a potentially life-changing win over England…

Iceland booked their place in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals with a shock 2-1 victory over England in Nice on Monday, a result that saw Roy Hodgson subsequently resign as Three Lions manager. 

They face France in Paris on Sunday, but can they topple the hosts to reach the final four in their first ever major tournament?
