Harry Kane showed great leadership traits as he consoled his teammates after England's penalty shoot-out loss to at Euro 2020 finals.
The Tottenham striker was also spotted consoling his teary wife Katy who wished her husband lifted the trophy at the expense of the Italians.

Photos of the couples emerged as Kane embraced his childhood sweetheart as she wiped away her tears.
Kane finished the tournament with four goals just one behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick who both finished with five goals.
The Wembley Stadium was thrown into rapturous celebrations after Luke Shaw put England into the lead as early as the second minute.
However, Italy came back in the second half after a goal-mouth scramble from Leonardo Bonucci to send the match into extra time.
There were no goals to settle the contest as it went straight into penalties, with all three England substitutes missed their penalties.
Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford missed their respective spot-kicks but Jordan Pickford put the Three Lions back into the game after saving two penalties from the Italians.
However, Gianluigi Donnaruma saved Bukayo Saka's decisive penalty to give the Azzurri their second ever European title.
Southgate takes responsibility for England loss
Earlier, TUKO.co.ke reported how England boss Gareth Southgate jumped into the defence of his wards following his side's defeat to Italy.
Southgate suggested he was entirely responsible for the result at Wembley Stadium.
“That’s my decision to give him that penalty, that’s totally my responsibility. It’s not him or Marcus or Jadon, we work together, we work through them in training, that’s the order we came to," he said.
