Pep Guardiola signed off his three years in the Bundesliga in style, as Bayern Munich lifted a fourth straight German league title after Saturday's 3-1 win over bottom-side Hannover.
Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze scored the goals for Bayern before Artur Sobiech managed to pull one back, but the win was never in doubt for the hosts and their boss, departing for Manchester City.
Lewandowski gave his side the lead and in the process reached 30 league goals for the season, just after 12 minutes in to the proceedings, finishing from near the penalty spot.
He is the first player to score at least 30 goals in a season since Dieter Mueller in 1977 and became the first foreign Bundesliga top scorer to net 30 times or more as he won the title for the second time in three seasons.
Mario Gotze put aside transfer speculation, to then score two well-struck efforts, in what could also be his final Bundesliga appearance with reports suggesting he may not be a part of incoming manager Carlo Ancelotti's plans.
Sobiech scored a consolation goal, before Bayern went into full-party mode as their manager ended with an impressive 80 per cent win rate, with 82 wins in just 102 league matches in Germany.
