French weather reporter Doria Tillier has proved true to her word after promising to present the forecast naked if France booked their place at the World Cup in Brazil.

She certainly didn't forecast France's remarkable 3-0 second-leg comeback at the Stade de France. Having lost the first leg 2-0, Les Bleus became the first European team to overcome a two-goal first-leg deficit in a World Cup play-off to qualify for the finals courtesy of two goals from Mamadou Sakho either side of Franck Ribery's first-half strike.

And in what was likely the most highly anticipated warm front of the year, Tillier made good on her promise on Wednesday, carrying out her reporting duties in just a pair of boots while running around a pastoral green landscape.

While French fans celebrated on the Champs Elysees, 27-year-old former model Tillier had been left to contemplate living up to her words after watching the drama unfold on Tuesday night.

"S***," she tweeted. "2-0 to France. I'm starting to stress."

The weather presenter has appeared on French nightly news and talk show Le Grand Journal on Canal+ since August 2012.
