Manchester City took to the streets to celebrate their historic domestic treble on Monday, as players and fans alike kicked back to mark the occasion.
City clinched the Premier League title with a victory over Brighton last weekend, before an incredible 6-0 victory over Watford in the FA Cup final clinched an unprecedented domestic treble, with City continuing to exert their dominance on English football.
While the players may have been meticulously tight and precise on the pitch, however, it initially seemed as if their celebrations may have got a bit clumsy. Footage from Twitter emerged apparently showing the trophy lying on the floor, having been dropped from a significant height - with top scorer Sergio Aguero looking on stunned.

Fortunately, it was quickly debunked. The Mirror soon reported that it was simply a prank, filmed for City TV and that the real Premier League trophy is still very much intact. That we know of.
With the panic over then, fans lined the streets all over the city, as the players' open top bus paraded Manchester.
They might have three major trophies in the bag, but the perm still matters, it seems.
At the end of it all, the sponsors announced some end-of-season awards. No points at all for guessing who won goal of the season.
Player of the season was something of a surprise, however. Many expected Raheem Sterling to take it home, but it went to Bernardo Silva.
Maybe it would have panned out differently for Raheem if he had managed to successfully steal Gabriel Jesus' goal in the FA Cup final, and seal his hattrick. Hard lines, but the England forward graciously conceded that it was the Brazilian's to celebrate, and he'll just have to settle for the three winners' medals and a PFA Young Player of the Year award.
