So that's a wrap. The Seattle Seahawks have won Super Bowl XLVIII.
It was a remarkable performance from the Seahawks.
Thanks for joining me.
John Fox is speaking. It's a terrible end to what has been a remarkable season for the Broncos coach.
He actually collapsed on a golf course with a heart defect on November 2. He had surgery on November 4 and only missed four weeks of the campaign.
"I would have liked for us to have played better. I feel bad for our fans, for our owner," he said.
"You've got to give [the Seahawks] credit. I don't know that we played our best game."
Pete Carroll, at 62, is one of the oldest Super Bowl-winning coaches.
And this is how his players thank him ....
This is why Malcolm Smith was named MVP: Nine tackles, one interception return for a touchdown, one fumble recovery. Awesome performance.
It's the Broncos' fifth Super Bowl loss. That is the most of any franchise in NFL history.
It is the Seahawks' first Super Bowl win in their history.Back to top
Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith has been named the Most Valuable Player.
It's a huge triumph for coach Pete Carroll who is being mobbed by his players and the media.
Quarterback Russell Wilson has thanked God.
"This is a true blessing. God's so good," he said.
"We believed we could get here .... I couldn't have done it without the guys ... Go Hawks."
Seahawks win! Seahawks win!
That was an annihilation.

And that sums up the Broncos' and Manning's night.
Chris Clemons gets his hand to the quarterback's throw, it falls to the ground and Seattle pick it up.

Here are our Music Editor's thoughts on the half-time show.
He reckons the Chili Peppers scorched Bruno Mars.
We have seen nothing of Broncos kicker Matt Prater tonight, which is a real shame.
Watch him nail the longest field goal in history earlier this season against the Tennessee Titans. Amazing.
Manning has completed 33 of 46 passes for 266 yards. He has thrown for one touchdown and two interceptions.
The number one defence has totally dominated the number one offence. Eleven minutes to go. Seahawks 43 Broncos 8
There's a time out while Richard Sherman is treated for an injury.
There has been a lot of chat on Twitter about the advert featuring Bob Dylan.
See what you make of it yourself:

Touchdown. And it's the Wilson/Baldwin combination again.
More poor defence. The tackling for this one was awful, with Baldwin ducking under two challenges.
That's Wilson's second touchdown pass for the game. The camera pans to his quarterback counterpart Manning, who looks disconsolate on the sideline.
This defeat will be a bitter pill to swallow for the Broncos. They have been thrashed.
And they still have 11.45 left to go.

There's a time out with 13.40 to go in the final quarter.
Ad time again. This is one of my favourites for Jaguar.
Finally, the Broncos are on the board.
Manning picks out Demaryius Thomas for a touchdown.
And then the Broncos decide to go for a two-point conversion. And they are successful. Manning picks out Wes Welker for the score.
And that's the end of the third quarter.
Seahawks 36 Broncos 8. Could this be the start of the most remarkable comeback ever?
Great catch by Jermaine Kearse, who then bounces off and twists his way through about five Broncos defenders to get into the end zone. Terrible defence.
And the extra point is good.
This is turning into a rout.
