Super Bowl 50: From million-dollar adverts to chicken wings

The Super Bowl, America's sporting showpiece, takes place this Sunday when the Carolina Panthers meet the Denver Broncos in Santa Clara, California.

Instead of the usual Roman numerals, this year's game uses Arabic numerals - hence Super Bowl 50 rather than Super Bowl L.

The BBC's Josh Hollis has been taking a look at the numbers behind what is arguably the year's biggest sporting event.
