"Siya! Beast! Mapimpi! Faf!"

These were some of the screams and cheers from the young and old as the Springbok tour bus drove through the streets of Soweto on Thursday.

It's been a thrilling week for South Africa, following the Springboks' spectacular win against England in the Rugby World Cup 2019 final in Japan on Saturday.

Led by captain Siya Kolisi, the team displayed guts and grit to clinch the coveted Webb Ellis Cup. And South Africa went mad with delight.

This week on The Story, we speak to Sport24's Rob Houwing and News24's Kamva Somdyala about the thrilling win.
