Former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver has become the third player from the National Football League (NFL) to win Dancing With The Stars.

Driver and his partner, dance pro Peta Murgatroyd, defied the odds and came out on top Tuesday night, winning the show's coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.

Welsh opera star Katherine Jenkins and her partner Mark Ballas finished in second place and Cuban soap star William Levy and his partner, two-time DWTS champ Cheryl Burke, finished in third place.

All three couples had perfect scores during Tuesday night's finale.

Driver joins fellow former NFL stars Emmitt Smith (Dallas Cowboys, season 3) and Hines Ward (Pittsburgh Steelers, season 12) as champions on the show.
