PEP GUARDIOLA broke down in tears after winning his fourth Premier League title in dramatic style.
Manchester City were 2-0 down at the Etihad to Aston Villa when they launched an epic comeback with 15 minutes remaining.
Two goals from Ilkay Gundogan and a third from Rodri – all in the space of five minutes – propelled City to top spot ahead of Liverpool.
The Reds kept the pressure up in their game against Wolves at Anfield, which they won 3-1.
It means City secured the title by just one single point.
And as the final whistle blew, Guardiola released all his emotions on the field.
The former Barcelona boss was embraced by City’s coaches as wild celebrations broke out across the stadium.
But Guardiola didn’t know where to look as the tears began to stream down his face.
The Spaniard was hugged by assistant Juan Lillo as he put his head in his hands and sobbed openly.
Guardiola had been a bag of nerves throughout the game, especially when Villa netted their second goal with just 20 minutes to play.

Had the visitors held on to their 2-0 lead, or even secured a point, the title would have ended up at Anfield.
But Gundogan’s 81st minute winner was the difference in the end.
And Guardiola was not ashamed to reveal his emotions to the public at the final whistle.
However, City fans were in a jubilant mood as they invaded the pitch during full time.
Delighted supporters stormed the field to congratulate their idols.
And some even ended up breaking the CROSSBAR as the likes of Kevin De Bruyne were mobbed.
However, Villa boss Steven Gerrard claimed afterwards that his goalkeeper Robin Olsen was attacked by City fans while trying to reach the tunnel.
The stopper came off holding the back of his head.
And Gerrard said: “Our goalkeeper was attacked. I am going to see how he is now. I think you should ask Pep and Man City those questions.”
