Following the disappointment against Real Madrid in Kiev 12 months ago, the players were clearly delighted to lift their first trophy since 2012.

Footage shared on the Liverpool website and social media accounts showed the players' wild celebrations after returning to the dressing room.

It then moves on to footage of players such as Roberto Firmino showing off their dance moves and groups taking photos in front of a banner that reads "winners."

Star forward Mohamed Salah, who opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the second minute, can also be seen taking a selfie with his winners' medal in a quiet corner.

It is followed by a video of left-back Alberto Moreno carrying the Champions League trophy into the dressing room escorted by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, both unused substitutes on the night.

The Spaniard places the cup into the centre of the room before other members of the squad flood around it and begin to dance.

The players themselves documented other sections of the post-match celebrations on their own social media accounts.

Mane, who is initially sat with his phone to his ear, soon joins in after receiving encouragement from the Croatia international.

Midfielder Oxlade Chamberlain, who returned from a serious injury earlier this year, captured footage of the squad singing a rendition of the fans' "Virgil van Dijk song”, with the star centre-back initially getting changed before standing up to encourage his team-mates.

In one of the calmer scenes, striker Daniel Sturridge shared a video of the players relaxing to music while captain Jordan Henderson poses for photos with the cup and members of the Reds' staff.

Although the Reds had already confirmed a place in next season's Champions League, their triumph means they will be put in Pot 1 for the Group Stage draw, while Tottenham will enter Pot 2.
