Toronto Argonauts linebacker Henoc Muamba was named both the most valuable player and most valuable Canadian of the Grey Cup on Sunday.
The 11-year veteran recorded three tackles and an interception in the Argos' 24-23 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
It was Toronto's first Grey Cup victory since 2017. Meanwhile, the Bombers fell short of a three-peat after winning consecutive titles.
It was Muamba's first Grey Cup title.
The interception came with just 3:20 remaining in the contest against Bombers quarterback Zach Collaros.
Muamba's pick put the Argos at Winnipeg's 43-yard line before teammate Boris Bede's 37-yard field-goal attempt was blocked.
