Ravens celebrate Super Bowl in Baltimore

6 February 2013 09:28

The Baltimore Ravens came home to celebrate in front of thousands of fans following their Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

The players were greeted by a sea of purple as an estimated 200,000 people turned out to see the parade through the streets on Tuesday.

The Ravens' 34-31 win over the 49ers gave them their second Super Bowl win in the 17th year of the franchise.

The team met outside City Hall for a parade that would eventually leave them at their home ground, the M&T Bank Stadium.

Some players travelled by military vehicle while others soaked up the adulation on top of a float built to resemble a football field.

The biggest honour went to retiring middle linebacker Ray Lewis, the only current player to have started with the team when it came to the city from Cleveland in 1996.

Bringing up the rear of the convoy Lewis held the famous silver Lombardi trophy aloft with his career finishing in the best possible circumstances.
