Hearts footballers have paraded through Edinburgh in an open-top bus after their Scottish Cup Final win over Hibs.

Hearts beat their city rivals 5-1 on Saturday, denying Hibs a first win in the competition's final in 110 years.

Thousands of people lined the route of the parade on Sunday afternoon to catch a glimpse of the winning side and the trophy.

The parade headed from Edinburgh City Chambers to the Hearts home ground Tynecastle.

Supporters were then getting into Tynecastle stadium to see the team and the trophy.

The club's manager Paulo Sergio said the victory was the biggest achievement of his career.

He said: "I am working outside my country which makes things harder in the beginning so that leaves a fantastic flavour.

"It was a great result, a great game by the team so I am very proud and happy.

"It was great to see the joy of all our supporters who came to Hampden and my family were in the stands.

"It was a great moment."

Work on decorating the victory parade bus began after the operators knew whether to paint it maroon or green.

Hibernian have not won the cup since 1902, while Hearts beat Gretna on penalties in the 2006 final.
