Milan welcomes home the Champions!
4.5 || ART

Thousands of fans filled the streets and squares of Milan and surrounding towns after AC Milan won their 17th Italian title on Sunday with a 1-0 win over their only remaining challengers, AS Roma.

Celebrating supporters waved flags and blasted horns after a win that goes some way to erasing the memory of Milan's shock elimination from the Champions League by Deportivo Coruna.

"We are invincible. We have been unlucky in the Champions League but we got our payback with winning the Italian title," said Milan supporter Giorgio Mariotti.

A second-minute header from Ukrainian Andriy Shevchenko ensured the victory for Milan, who moved nine points clear of Roma with just two matches remaining.

The celebrations went on for hours with people and cars moving through the city's streets displaying scarves, banners and hats sporting the team's red and black colors.

The noise of car horns and the sight of convoys of young fans on scooters was played out in other towns in Lombardia where loyalties are split between Milan and city rivals Inter.

The partying in the streets made up for the sour atmosphere at the stadium where the game was twice interrupted in the second half after Roma fans hurled fireworks and missiles on to the pitch.

Milan's Gennaro Gattuso was stunned by a powerful firework that exploded near him, and Milan goalkeeper Dida had to receive medical attention after he was twice struck by objects thrown from the crowd.

But after the final whistle was blown Milan's players danced in front of their supporters at the southern end of the stadium, linking arms and throwing themselves on to the pitch to huge roars from the 81,000 crowd.
