The biggest sporting spectacle in North America, the Superbowl, has lived up to its billing.

The Pittsburgh Steelers carried a 20 to 7 lead going into the final quarter of American football's permier event in Florida, but the Arizona Cardinals came back at them and a Larry Fitzgerald touch down put them in the lead 23-20.

But with 35 seconds left on the clock the Pittsburgh Steelers managed a do-or-die touch down by Santonio Holmes.

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals 27-23, winning the 43rd Superbowl, the sixth time the club has lifted the trophy.
