Iceland has reportedly had a record number of births nine months on from beating England at UEFA Euro 2016.
According to Icelandic newspaper Visir (h/t The Independent), the country has had a record-breaking birthrate with epidurals—painkilling injections often administered during childbirth—reaching record numbers over the weekend of March 25 and 26.
Goals from Ragnar Sigurdsson and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson saw Iceland come from behind to beat the Three Lions 2-1 in the round of 16 as the country made a sensational debut at an international tournament.
Per football commentator Juan G. Arango, Gerard Pique suggested Barcelona might enjoy a similar baby-boom after the Catalan giants completed a stunning 6-5 comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League earlier this month:

Piqué: "Hospitals in Barcelona better start hiring nurses to be ready nine months from now. Lots of people here will be making love tonight"2017-3-9 15:43:31
In December, perhaps we'll see if the people of Barcelona celebrated the victory in the same manner as the Icelanders.
