United States president Donald Trump and NBA star LeBron James were among those applauding the New England Patriots and Tom Brady.
Super Bowl LI MVP Brady led the Patriots to a stunning come-from-behind 34-28 overtime win against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
It saw him clinch his fifth title and perhaps settle the debate over the greatest player ever.
While Brady was lauded, so was James White - who scored three touchdowns, including the game-winner - and had 110 receiving yards and 29 rushing yards.
What an amazing comeback and win by the Patriots. Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Coach B are total winners. Wow!-- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 6, 2017
