  1. Good night one and all...

    New England Patriots 34-28 Atlanta Falcons

    A stunning night of sport.

    We thank you all for staying up with us throughout, even though if I wasn't working I would probably have voted to go to bed at half time.

    It didn't even look like being a contest. Tom Brady was throwing a bag of nails but he somehow turned it all around.

    James White scored 20 points and the Patriots won their fifth Super Bowl.

    See you all soon for more sporting greatness...

    Ian B: As great as Brady was I still think bad play calling by Atlanta in the 4th was the deciding factor offensively

    Mike Anderson: And that is why the #SuperBowl is worth staying up all night for. The greatest/most ridiculous comeback in sports history.

  3. 'That's what champions are'

    Tom Brady. He throws the interception but just builds his way back up. That's what champions are, right? This is legendary.

    New England quarterback Tom Brady: "There were a lot of plays, probably about 30 of them, and if any one was different the outcome would have been different. It was unbelievable. I'm so proud of these guys.

    "It's going to be a great celebration tonight. Thanks to everyone back in Boston, we love you, we're bringing this sucker home!"

    Patriots coach Bill Belichick: "We have great players, they competed the whole game. They were 28-3 down but they never looked back.

    "They just keep competing for 60 minutes, or longer."

  7. Post update

    Patriots owner Robert Kraft: "I told our fans two years ago that was the sweetest win of all, but a lot has transpired in the last two years. That doesn't need any explanation.

    "This is unequivocally the sweetest. I am proud to say for the fifth time the Patriots are World Champions."

  8. Post update

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell gets a blast of jeers from the crowd as he makes a speech.

    New England Patriots 34-28 Atlanta Falcons

    I still don't know how that happened. Atlanta weren't just miles ahead, New England couldn't do the basics. They couldn't complete a pass. They were nowhere!

    James Jackson: Never say never but... I really don't think I'll ever witness a game like that again

    Aidan Semple: That Julian Edelman catch will go down in #SuperBowl history. David Tyree 2.0. Incredible!

    Vince Maple: The phrase Game of Two Halves is used an awful lot - it should now be retired after tonight's #SuperBowl

  15. The GOAT?

  16. 'The worst loss we have ever seen'

    Two-time Super Bowl winner

    There is no solace for Atlanta. They were ahead by 25 points, a game they had to win. I can't imagine how they are feeling. They made so many young mistakes, you can't make them against the New England Patriots. 

    This is the worst loss we have ever seen in the history of the Super Bowl.

  17. Post update

    New England Patriots 34-28 Atlanta Falcons

    Bill Belichick, not usually the most animated man, is full of emotion down there.

  18. 'The greatest!'

    Two-time Super Bowl winner

    For the last year and a half I've talked about how Tom Brady is not the greatest of all time. I take it all back. The improbability of what this man just did, I can't believe what I have seen with my own two eyes.

    It is unbelievable. I take back ever negative thing I ever said about this man, he shut me up today. He truly is the greatest.
