AC Milan didn't disappoint its supporters who celebrated the club's 18th league title before and during a 4-1 win over Cagliari on Saturday.

The club secured the Italian title a week ago when it drew 0-0 away to Roma, and since then played the Italian Cup semifinal away to Palermo.

Ahead of the match, the team went on an open-top bus ride through city streets thronged with supporters, before leading a procession to the San Siro.

Once at the stadium, players, their wives and children celebrated in front of the fans on the pitch wearing commemorative T-shirts.

When the match finally started, a brace from Robinho and a strike by Gennaro Gattuso gave Milan a 3-1 lead at the break before Clarence Seedorf added a fourth in the closing stages.
