Tampa Bay Buccaneers has beaten Kansas City Chiefs 31 to 9 in Super Bowl 55.
Tom Brady threw two of his three touchdown passes to Rob Gronkowski, and for Brady's record seventh Super Bowl win, the Tampa Bay defense frustrated Patrick Mahomes to lead the Buccaneers to a 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
The NFL team rushed to announce their victory on social media.

The son of the former US President, Donald Trump Jr., took to Twitter to express his joy over the Buccaneers' win and congratulated Brady for his work.
There is no question anymore as to who the GOAT is. It wasn’t coaching it was Brady and it always was. That argument was settled tonight when he took a team no one thought could win anything to the #SuperBowl and won at 43 years of age. Amazing.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) February 8, 2021
Well done Tom. #Brady

The 55th Super Bowl was the third edition to be held at Raymond James Stadium, the first hosted by the Tampa region, and it's the first time in history that a local team was playing at home in the Super Bowl.
This was the lowest-attended Super Bowl ever, due to the COVID pandemic and the restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the virus. The official attendance was at 25,000 fans, including 7,500 vaccinated healthcare workers who will take part in an all-expense-paid trip to the game. The stadium, however, allows a total of 65,890 fans to be seated at once.
After the Champions League final, the Super Bowl is the most-watched television event in the US and the second most viewed annual sports event worldwide.
