Chiefs win Super Bowl – but Trump congratulates wrong state

Jennifer Lopez and Shakira rocked the half-time show as the Kansas City Chiefs won their first Super Bowl in 50 years.

The Chiefs overcame a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter of the game to beat the fancied San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Miami.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes – at 23 the youngest to be named Super Bowl most valuable player – led the underdogs who were last NFL champions in 1970, to an unexpected victory.

They trailed 20-10 but scored 21 unanswered points to take the title, continuing their habit of coming from behind in post-season games.

They had already rallied from deficits of 24-0 to beat Houston and 10-0 to get past Tennessee.
