Liverpool won the 2018-19 Champions League on Sunday after dispatching Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the final of Saturday. A goal each from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi proved enough to secure a sixth European Cup for the Reds. The team embarked on an open top bus parade on Sunday to celebrate their triumph with the fans — an estimated 750,00 supporters were out on the streets cheering the winners. Here's a selection of the best images from Liverpool's victory parade.
