Patrick Mahomes has led the Kansas City Chiefs to a second-straight Super Bowl win and third in the last five years with a stunning come-from-behind overtime victory against the San Francisco 49ers.
Mahomes found Mecole Hardman with a three-yard pass with just three seconds remaining in overtime to claim a 25-22 victory in Las Vegas.
The Chiefs are the first team since the 2005 New England Patriots to win back-to-back Super Bowls.
For the second year in a row, the Chiefs trailed by 10 points in the match, and were behind in overtime after Jake Moody kicked a 27-yard field goal.
But Mahomes, who was named Super Bowl MVP for the third time, led a 75-yard, 14-play drive to secure the victory that included an eight-yard run on fourth down and a 19-yard run further down the drive.
A misfiring offence and uncharacteristic errors contributed to the 49ers going into half time with a 10-3 lead.
Travis Kelce, watched on by girlfriend Taylor Swift, only had one reception for a single yard in the first half — his only real contribution to an error-strewn half from the defending champs being to angrily bump his 65-year-old coach Andy Reid when kept on the sideline for a play that resulted in the Chiefs turning the ball over.
The Niners led through a 55-yard field goal from Moody — at that stage the longest field goal in Super Bowl history — before a trick play in the second quarter saw Jauan Jennings throw to Christian McCaffrey for a 21-yard score.
Harrison Butker kicked a field goal either side of the half time break, the first 28-yarder, the second a record-breaking 57-yarder, to make it a four-point game.
The Chiefs needed a huge slice of luck to get on the board, when a Tom Townsend punt hit the foot of Niners player Ray-Ray McCloud III, with Darrell Luter Jr unable to recover the now live ball allowing Chiefs player Jaylen Watson to dive on it.
Mahomes needed just one play to find Marquez Valdes-Scantling for the 16-yard touchdown.
The Niners responded when Brock Purdy found Jennings for a 10-yard touchdown to retake the lead, but crucially Moody saw his extra point attempt blocked.
Butker kicked two field goals either side of a 53-yard Moody effort to send the game to overtime, when the Chiefs finally went to work.
