Cam Newton's post-match Super Bowl press conference has earned the Carolina player criticism from most sides.

Newton was part of the team that lost 24-10 to Denver on Sunday night, and appeared to look uninterested when giving short answers to the press.

It has been revealed the Newton was in clear earshot of Denver players celebrating the win, that was not picked up on television cameras.

The voice in the background is Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris. You can hear the 26-year-old speak about what his team's plan was to thwart Newton and the Panthers; "Load the box, force y'all to throw the ball. Can you throw the football? That was the gameplan."

Harris revealed afterwards that he has no idea he was Newton was the other side of the partition.
