A video has surfaced online appearing to show the Premier League trophy smashed on the ground with Manchester City players looking on from a balcony.

The newly crowned champions and thousands of fans took to the streets of Manchester to celebrate a successful campaign that included the domestic treble.

There was plenty of fireworks, confetti and shenanigans all in good fun, as the players drank out the Carabao Cup and Vincent Kompany gave a touching goodbye speech.

However, as the celebrations died down a video emerged on Twitter that appeared to show a broken trophy on the floor with star striker Sergio Aguero looking on in horror. 

The video seemed to have some Twitter users fooled with fans joking about the incident after believing the video to be genuine.

The clip turned out to be a prank sketch filmed by City TV however, Aguero has to be given praise for his role in the prank with a career in acting perhaps on the horizon. 

The incident wouldn't have been that far fetched to believe after full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko accidentally knocked over the trophy during last years celebrations.
