Sportsmen and women from around the globe paid tribute to the South Africa rugby team after their impressive 32-12 victory over England in the Rugby World Cup final.
Rassie Erasmus' side were in a belligerent mood and steamrolled Eddie Jones' men thanks to the boot of Handre Pollard and second-half tries from Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe.
The win is South Africa's third Rugby World Cup triumph following their success in going all the way in 1995 and 2007, and celebrities from the game of rugby as well as other sports commended the display from the Springboks.
