France and Wales played for 100 minutes and people thought the match would never end
Wales were denied a sixth successive win against France after Les Bleus scored a winning try just moments before the game ended.
The hosts snatched a dramatic Six Nations victory at the Stade de France in Paris, taking the score to 20-18.
However, those who watched the game will probably remember it most not for the nail-biting last few moments, but for the 20 minutes of added time which took the clock past 100 minutes.
Is this the longest game in history??!!#FRAvWAL— Jason Robinson OBE (@Jason15Robinson) March 18, 2017

The year is 2020; Britain has left the EU, Scotland has left the UK, the Welsh are still in a scrummage in France #FRAvWAL— James Cairns (@CairnsJA) March 18, 2017
Some of these blokes didn't have beards when this game started... #FRAvWAL— Charlie Lenton (@Chasabeth) March 18, 2017
France finished strongly, camping in during chaotic dying seconds through a series of scrums, and the visitors ultimately could not hold out as Camille Chat struck for a try that Camille Lopez converted.
But all fans could think about was the precious time they had lost while glued to the TV screen:
