Tom Brady Dubbed The 'Greatest Sportsman Of All-Time' After Seventh Super Bowl Victory

Tom Brady continues to defy logic.

At 43 years of age, he just won his record seventh Super Bowl as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers dethroned the Kansas City Chiefs in a 31-9 mauling.

On the big night, he threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns and was named the game's MVP for a fifth time in his career.

What Brady did during the game itself was greatness personified, but it was his presence from the second he walked through the Buccaneers' front door which truly galvanised a championship-hungry team that hadn't reached a Super Bowl since 2003.

Without being too cliche, the writing was on the wall from the second he signed.

Brady's resume speaks for itself, but for him to deliver the coveted Vince Lombardi trophy to the city of Tampa Bay in his first season with the team undoubtedly puts him an elite category of athletes that not many come remotely close to entering.

Even NBA icon and six-time champion Michael Jordan would have a run for his money after Brady's latest achievement - and that's saying something.

There's a good reason why Brady is already known by NFL fans as "The GOAT", and in Super Bowl 55 he proved that nickname correct.

Unsurprisingly, social media went into complete and utter meltdown after Brady and the Buc's victory with many quick to label him as "the greatest".

And no, they don't just mean he's the greatest football player of all-time but also the greatest sportsman too.
