The sporting world's attention turned from real football to its American counterpart on Sunday as the Super Bowl kicked off between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots.
The game's biggest contest of the year attracts eyes from all over the world, including those of some of Europe's top stars.
This year, the Patriots got the better of the Rams with a superb defensive display, winning 13-3 to secure the sixth crown in their history.
Star quarterback Tom Brady guided the Pats to another title, but it was Tottenham striker Harry Kane who was leading the plaudits from the stands in Atlanta as football players and clubs joined in the fun.

Alguém pode me explicar por que chamam esse esporte de futebol se isso não é uma bola e não jogam com o pé? #futebolSQN
Can someone explain why they call this sport football, if it’s not a ball and you don’t play it with a foot? pic.twitter.com/mr25mjWecD
