Marcus Rashford was overcome with emotion after Manchester United stunned Manchester City to win the FA Cup at Wembley.

Television cameras and photographers captured the lifelong United fan and academy graduate shedding tears at the final whistle after the 2-1 win.

First-half goals by Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo won United the FA Cup for the 13th time in their history as they upset the odds.

It was a happy ending to what has been a hugely disappointing season for Rashford, who has found the net only eight times having notched 30 in 2022-23.

Victory at Wembley came after a tough week in which the 26-year-old missed out on Gareth Southgate's England squad for Euro 2024.

It has led to speculation Rashford could be sold by United in the summer, with the forward linked with Paris Saint-Germain in the past.

Rashford started the FA Cup final at Wembley and completed 74 minutes before Erik ten Hag replaced him with Rasmus Hojlund.

Teenagers Garnacho and Mainoo stole the show with two goals late in the opening half to leave City stunned.

Although Jeremy Doku rewarded City's second-half dominance with a late reply, they were unable to force extra time with an equaliser as their Double ambitions died.

Rashford's show of emotion as he embraced his team-mates was well-received by United fans on social media - although some interpreted it as a farewell.
