Ange Postecoglou has officially become manager of Tottenham Hotspur, in a landmark move for the Australian coach.
The move means Postecoglou, 57, is set to become the first Australian to manage in the Premier League.
He joins after a successful stint with Scottish Premiership club Celtic, most recently winning the treble, after bagging two trophies in his first season with the club.
The 2015 AFC Asian Cup winner with the Socceroos joined Celtic after spending three seasons with Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan, where he won the J.League title in his second season with the club - their first Championship win in 15 years.
Postecoglou's move to England's top flight marks a monumental moment for Australian coaches abroad.
Postecoglou was announced as Spurs' new First Team Head Coach on Tuesday, joining from 1 July on a four-year contract.
“Ange brings a positive mentality and a fast, attacking style of play," Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy said.
"He has a strong track record of developing players and an understanding of the importance of the link from the academy - everything that is important to our Club. We are excited to have Ange join us as we prepare for the season ahead."
