After the Philadelphia Eagles produced a Hollywood-style ending to the NFL season in Minnesota, it was only fitting that they received a congratulatory message from an icon of the silver screen.

Sylvester Stallone famously portrayed 'Rocky Balboa' - the ultimate underdog champion hailing from Philadelphia - in a series of hugely successful films.

In Rocky II, following his world title success in a rematch against Apollo Creed, an exhausted Balboa tells his wife: "Yo Adrian, I did it!"

After the Eagles beat the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII, Stallone took to Instagram to deliver a similar message to Doug Pederson's victorious team.
