Tom Brady insisted his sixth Super Bowl victory does not change his plans to continue the greatest individual career in NFL history.

Patriots quarterback Brady became the first player to win the Lombardi Trophy six times as Bill Belichick's team overcame the Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl 53 on Sunday.

Both offenses struggled in what was the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history but Brady led what proved to be a decisive fourth-quarter drive and hit Rob Gronkowski on a 29-yard pass to set up Sony Michel for a 2-yard run.

Jared Goff was subsequently intercepted by Stephon Gilmore on the Rams' next drive, and Brady and the Patriots then bled the clock to seal the win and tie the Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins.

Brady has been adamant he has no immediate plans to retire and, despite now having secured his place as the most successful player in the history of the game, the 41-year-old made it clear he will not be having a change of heart.

He told CBS Sports: "It was an unbelievable year. We fought through it more so than anything, it's unbelievable to win this game, they played so well, the Rams defense they played their butts off, what a defense, they had a great plan, they made it tough on every play.

"We just kept fighting and finally got a touchdown and the defense played the best game of the year.

"We've been this far and lost which is really tough, we had a lot of resolve the last couple of weeks. I wish we'd played a little better on offense but we won, I can't believe it."

Asked if it changes his plans to keep playing, Brady replied: "It doesn't change anything. I can't wait to spend some time with my family and my kids and my wife, I couldn't do it without their support, it's just been a great year.

"I'm so happy for my team-mates, this is a dream come true for all of us."
