“The legendary Olympiacos made us proud and thrilled all the fans and supporters around the world. Mascot literally “shook” with the voices of the Olympiacos fans.”

Elsewhere, in Athens, Greece, where the Europa Conference League final between Olympiacos and Italy’s Fiorentina was taking place, Greek Australians John and Nicholas Drakoulis had the good fortune to be present.
