    Champagne, cigars and a 50-piece chicken nugget order: they've all featured amongst the Milwaukee Bucks' title celebrations.

    It's been over 24 hours since the Milwaukee Bucks sealed their first NBA title for 50 years and we're not sure that anyone in the city of Milwaukee has been to bed yet – not least the players.

    Here are just a few of the scenes so far.

    These were the crowds who turned out to watch in the city on Tuesday night. More than 10% of the city's population came together in the Deer District outside Fiserv Forum. There were 17,000 fans inside the Fiserv Forum and 65,000 outside.
