Floyd Mayweather, Eugene Bouchard and date among stars at the Super Bowl

The stars were out in force at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis as the Philadelphia Eagles triumphed over the New England Patriots to win their maiden Super Bowl title.

With tickets hard to come by for the biggest game in football, it is no surprise that many in attendance were sporting VIPs.

During last year's Super Bowl, tennis ace Eugenie Bouchard made headlines when University of Missouri student John Goehrke asked her on Twitter if they could go on a date if the New England Patriots -- trailing the Atlanta Falcons by 25 points -- won. We all know how that turned out. Ever since, the pair's relationship has blossomed, and thanks to NFL Canada, the pair snagged a pair of tickets to the game itself.

England boss Gareth Southgate also watched on from the U.S. Bank Stadium, with the NFL novice taking in his first ever game of American Football -- not a bad match to lose your NFL cherry!

Southgate was on a mission to learn more about the way NFL coaches operate, and the England manager even popped up on British television to provide a bit of punditry during the first half of the game.

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy got over his injury troubles to jet out Stateside for the big game -- and he was not afraid to get his kit off after the game, braving the -20oC temperatures by stripping off.

Finally, whenever there is an event where the wealthy come out to play, you can always expect Floyd Mayweather to be around. The Super Bowl was no different, and 'Money' took his seat for the big game.
