Photos and videos from Bayer Leverkusen's wild celebrations of their historic Bundesliga triumph have emerged.

Die Werkself were officially crowned the German top flight champions on Sunday, April 14, ending Bayern Munich's incredible 11-year winning streak.

According to GiveMeSport, an emphatic 5-0 win over Bremen helped Leverkusen get the job done, with Florian Wirtz and Granit Xhaka getting their names on the score sheet in the second half.

The victory sparked wild celebrations from Leverkusen fans, who stormed BayArena to celebrate the unforgettable experience.

Leverkusen stars celebrate in the dressing room

However, for Leverkusen players, the celebrations continued in the dressing room, with their manager also involved.

The changing room was uncontrollable as the players had the time of their lifetime after many years in the cold in the German top flight.

Alonso had a seemingly 'rough' time as he was drenched in beer three times as he led his charges in their raucous celebrations.

In another clip shared online, Edmond Tapsoba and Álex Grimaldo were seen singing together and spraying more beer, with full-back, Jeremie Frimpong, live-streaming part of the wild jubilations.

Meanwhile, with the club having a spot at the European League semi-finals and the DFB-Pokal finals, there are chances that they may secure a treble.

Mourinho predicts Xabi Alonso's triumph

Sports Brief has also previously reported on footage of Jose Mourinho accurately predicting Xabi Alonso's future having resurfaced online.

The Spaniard led Leverkusen to Bundesliga glory on Sunday, with Die Werkself's triumph marking their first title since the German Cup in 1993.

Following his impressive run of results, a clip of iconic Portuguese gaffer, Mourinho, predicting Alonso's success as a manager has resurfaced.
