      Hi my friends.

      I don’t know if Sealed with a kiss is a cliche but I saw under a picture this definition as a title/headline/introduction whatever.

      What does that mean?

      Sealed with a kiss : ?

      Originally the phrase ‘sealed with a kiss‘ refer to a letter sent from one lover to another with the meaning of sending the letter with love.

      In football, to seal a victory means that one team has ensured victory and the other side has been beaten. The image of Fernandinho will probably either show him being kissed (congratulated) by his colleague or of him blowing a kiss to the crowd as he celebrates a victory.
