But, despite several errors by his team which eventually handed victory to the Giants, Brady found comfort in the form of his stunning wife.

Wearing a leather jacket, with a black dress over her black trousers and a black and white scarf, Gisele headed behind the scenes at the stadium to try and brighten her husband's evening.

According to reports he was so dejected after the match had finished that he spent almost 20 minutes sat down in the Patriots locker room staring at the floor.

She kept a big smile on her face and a tight grip on Brady's hand as the quarterback appeared sullen-faced.

The couple made their way out of the stadium and boarded the team's bus at the end of the game.

Brady had started the game hoping to equal Joe Montana's record of four Super Bowl wins, but early mistakes put the New York Giants in a strong position.

Though the Patriots regained their composure and managed to claw their way back - victory was eventually taken by the Giants in the closing minutes.

Speaking to media members, Tom somberly said: 'You know, we fought to the end. You know, we're very proud of that. Just came up a little bit short.'

Asked if he thought he could lead his team to a winning touchdown after getting the ball back with one minute left, the 34-year-old replied: 'Yeah, we tried, you know.

'We just, we got to the fifty and kind of ran out of time and threw a hail mary at the end. I don't know how close we were to getting it.'

The quarterback also added: 'As a competitor, we all hate to lose. We fight as hard as we can and sometimes you get beat. I'm proud of our team for the way that we hung in there all season.

'We just kept fighting until the end and it came down to one play at the end of the game. I give (the Giants) a lot of credit for the plays they made. They deserved to win and hopefully we'll be back at some point.'

After making their way onto the team bus Tom sat down and was seen resting his head against the back of the seat in front of him, staring at the floor like he did in the dressing room earlier that evening.
