Media captionWorld Cup 2018: Croatia 2-1 England (aet) highlights

A peak audience of 26.5 million people watched England go out of the World Cup on ITV, according to overnight figures.

That made it the most-watched broadcast on British TV since the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony.

Wednesday’s audience peaked between 21:30-21:35 BST as England tried to find an equaliser at the end of extra time in the semi-final against Croatia.

But they couldn’t score, meaning Croatia won 2-1 to take them into Sunday’s final against France.
