ANTOINE GRIEZMANN has spoken of his frustration that France boss Didier Deschamps has imposed a SEX BAN on the squad during Euro 2020.
The 30-year-old has stated that he and his team-mates have accepted their gaffer's decision as Les Bleus aim to win a second consecutive major tournament.
Ahead of France's last-16 clash against Switzerland, it was revealed in Le Parisien that the 2018 World Cup champions are having to refrain from physical interactions with their partners.
Speaking of the ban, Barcelona forward Griezmann said: "We cannot touch anyone, not even family members.
"But it cannot be done otherwise.
"It’s tough for everyone, players and staff, but it must be accepted."
An unnamed member of France's staff then added: "Most of the players are in their twenties, and all they have left is to, you know…
"Abstinence does not create tension, but it is a discussed topic.
"Also because it becomes complicated not even being able to give a kiss or a caress to the loved one."
France are favourites to win their first European Championship since 2000 having finished top of Group F.
