Inside South Africa dressing room as hero De Klerk gets party started by downing champagne from trophy in his pants

The Sun Sports 1 month ago

SOUTH AFRICA have already gotten the party started after securing their third Rugby World Cup triumph against England.

The Springboks secured a convincing 32-12 victory over Eddie Jones’ men in Yokohama and quickly got their wild celebrations underway after lifting the famous Webb Ellis trophy.

One of their biggest heroes, Faf de Klerk got things underway when, stripped down to his pants, he took a swig of champagne out of the famous cup.

The Springboks last tasted World Cup glory in 2007, and De Klerk’s teammates were keen to get in on the act.

The 28-year-old is seen passing the trophy around as his teammates take turns glugging champagne out of the biggest prize in world rugby.

As music blares out in the dressing room, smiles are plastered across the South African faces as they look to savour the moment on the day that they became national heroes and rugby legends.

Players are seen swigging beers and tucking into pizza as they celebrate becoming champions of the world.

Another clip shows Prince Harry, gracious in defeat, delivering a congratulatory speech to the jubilant Springboks.

Skipper Siya Kolisi made history as he became the first black captain to lift the Webb Ellis trophy.

The momentous occasion comes 24 years after the legendary Nelson Mandela handed Francois Pienaar the very same trophy.

Mandela had been imprisoned for 27 years by the racist regime for campaigning against apartheid.

And the image of him in a Springboks jersey handing Pienaar the trophy back in 1995 was a significant one for the nation.

Jubilant fans have even urged the triumphant number six to run for president himself after becoming the hero of a nation.

But for now Kolisi, seen dancing in celebration with his teammates, can just celebrate his victory, as his courageous performances and quality on the pitch have earned him legend status in South Africa and in rugby for the rest of time.
