Deion Sanders takes to Twitter to congratulate his rival team captain Jerry Rice on his victory in last night's Pro Bowl.

Deion Sanders has congratulated Jerry Rice for his success in yesterday's Pro Bowl.

Sanders, a legendary NFL cornerback in his playing career, went head-to-head with Rice as respective captains of two teams in a new format for the annual match that saw players drafted to rosters rather than split up into AFC against NFC.

Team Rice came out on top on the night, scoring a touchdown with a successful two-point conversion in the final minute to claim a narrow 22-21 win over Team Sanders.

"Congrats to #TeamPrime for playing your hearts out and Congrats to #TeamRice for the Victory!!! It's so hard 4 me 2 tweet this I hate losing," Sanders wrote on Twitter.

"I don't care what level you're on or what age you are if you don't want to compete and win there's something wrong. Best #Probowl I've seen!"

Sanders also wrote a message directly to Rice, saying: "@JerryRice Great Job Goat!!!! Enjoy this moment cause u know I'm hot right now."

Last night's Pro Bowl was widely regarded as one of the most competitive in years.
