You may have seen the numerous videos posted by Juventus’ official Twitter account of the players and staff partying in style.
Nothing too unordinary after they've just clinched the title.

Apart from one epic video that is.
Paul Pogba, who was earlier dancing on the treatment table in the dressing room, appeared to be taking a selfie on his phone when he went crashing into a nearby table after slipping on the champagne-soaked floor.
To make it even more comical, the French superstar was wearing sunglasses and, for some reason, also has a pair of goalkeeper gloves in his hand.
The midfielder smashed into the table, appearing the break it’s leg (the table’s leg, not Pogba’s.) But the embarrassment wasn’t over.
Pogba tried scrambling to his feet which only caused him to slip again.
Juventus tweeted the video with the brilliant caption: “That moment when you get a little carried away with the celebrations… #Hi5tory”
His teammates didn’t appear to take too much notice - they were too busy partying themselves - but the former Manchester United man is likely to be subject to some ridicule when they see this video going viral.
As long as he hasn’t seriously injured himself, Pogba won’t care about his little slip. The 23-year-old has been instrumental in Juventus’ title winning campaign, scoring ten goals in 45 matches in all competitions.
In fact, Pogba has played a role in Juventus’ previous four title triumphs and appears to have the footballing world at his feet.
Questions may be asked in the summer about Pogba’s future and whether he is ready for a new challenge. He excited Manchester City fans last month when he was quoted by ESPN as saying:
"Guardiola is a coach with a lot of experience, he has a philosophy which is very important and he has a big impact on the team," he said.
"People respect him. When you see him, you want to play and progress. He is an icon of football and I've heard he manages to improve every player he has at his disposal."
