MAGIC is a system of two 17 meter Imaging Air Cherenkov Telescopes, located at the Observatorio Roque de los Muchachos at an altitude of 2200 meters on the Canary island of La Palma. It detects gamma rays in the very high energy regime between a few tens of GeV and tens of TeV. In this presentation, I will show the latest highlights achieved by the powerful low energy threshold of the instrument, like the measurement of the spectrum of the Geminga pulsar down to a few tens of GeV. I will also show the latest results on multiwavelength and multimessenger astronomy, in which MAGIC has played a leading role, putting special emphasis on the flaring blazar TXS 0506+056 coincident with high-energy neutrino IceCube-170922A and the very recent VHE gamma-ray measurement of the GRB 190114C.
