Cameraman filming Man City's victory parade ends up giving Pep a lift home

All in a day's work..

Manchester City fans will still be on cloud nine after their beloved side clinched the first domestic treble in English football history this season, winning the Premier League, FA Cup and EFL Cup.

Pep Guardiola's devastating outfit hammered Watford 6-0 on Saturday evening in the FA Cup final to secure all three trophies this term, while their unbelievable run throughout this exhilarating league campaign - which saw them pip chasers Liverpool to top spot by obtaining 98 points - will go down in the history books at the Etihad.

The team celebrated with fans in the heart of the City centre on Monday with an open top bus parade around Manchester, where the Cityzens squad and manager Pep Guardiola ended by thanking supporters on stage, greeted by songs and chants by the Sky Blues faithful.

There was also an emotional send-off for City legend Vincent Kompany, who bids farewell to the club after 11 years at the Etihad. The Belgian - who skippered the side for the most part of his career in the north west - will never be forgotten, not just at City but in the Premier League in general thanks to years of flawless performances in England's top flight.

Thousands of fans swarmed the streets last night, even after the parade had finished and proceedings came to a halt, which prevented many of City's squad from being able to discreetly exit the celebrations to return home. None more so than manager Pep Guardiola, who planned on walking back to his hotel through a colossal sea of sky blue shirts and oversized flags.

Luckily, BBC cameraman and massive Cityzens fan Mark Hilton was on hand to help out his hero. Speaking to BBC News, Mr Hilton explained how he had just packed up and was about to leave before a member of Guardiola's security asked if he would give the Spaniard a lift home!

"I'm just about to leave the back of the media compound and Pep and the players were at the back of the cathedral as it had all finished on the stage and they're just all having drinks," he said.

"I was just about to leave and a security guy came over all Men In Black with a City suit on and an earpiece in.

"He said 'are you going?' so I said 'yeah' and he said 'you couldn't give Pep a lift home could you? We can't get him out'.

"I said 'give him a lift home? I'll carry him home!'"

Despite Pep insisting he would walk home, his security deemed it too much of a risk considering how many City fans were still out celebrating; understandably, Mark was more than happy to lend a favour.

"In the van he could tell I wanted to stick my lips on him, so he was edging towards the door, but he was dead nice," added Mark.

"All the way there I'm going 'no-one's ever going to believe this'."
