Damning footage of Travis Kelce doing 'unacceptable' act emerges after Super Bowl win

Travis Kelce is facing criticism after shoving his Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid in a heated exchange during the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Last night, Patrick Mahomes threw a walk-off touchdown in overtime to see the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 and claim their second Super Bowl in succession.

Super Bowl LVIII, which featured Taylor Swift in the stands supporting boyfriend Kelce, Usher performing a 13-minute medley at half-time and Mahomes’ on-field heroics, will go down as one of the most dramatic editions of America’s show-piece event in history.

However, one particular moment which has made headlines for the wrong reasons is when tight-end Kelce exploded at Chiefs coach Andy Reid.

The Chiefs were 3-0 down and had squandered possession close to the 49ers' end zone when a furious Kelce, who had been taken out of play, stormed up to Reid, barged the 65-year-old and screamed in his face.

Reid was briefly knocked off balance and turned away from Kelce, who had to be pulled away by a team-mate to cool off. It was an incident which, as per Yahoo, was labelled by fans online as “unacceptable” and “out of order”.

On the incident, a victorious Kelce told ESPN after the game “Man, I was fired up — I was fired up that we weren’t hitting on all cylinders.

“I had to give ‘Big Red’ a love tap and let him know that we were all here fighting for him no matter what. I just had to tell him I loved him real quick. I put so much trust in him and how he goes about being a head coach, as a leader — he’s one of the best leaders in the game.

“I can’t thank him enough for giving me opportunities year in, year out. This third one, this second one back-to-back, this one’s for him, no doubt. I’ve got the greatest coach this game has ever seen.

“He’s helped me a lot with channelling that emotion, channelling that passion and I owe my entire career to that guy and being able to control how emotional I get. I just love him.”

Reid also played down the incident, making light of the situation.

The veteran NFL coach joked to CBS: "He keeps me young. He tested that hip. He caught me off balance - normally I’d give him a little bit but you know what, I didn’t have any feet under me."
