South Africa players brought to tears after winning World Cup against New Zealand

South Africa players embraced one another after beating New Zealand 12-11 in a nail-biting Rugby World Cup final.

The one-point victory match has made history for South Africa, becoming the first side to win the tournament four times.

Cane was shown a red card in the 28th minute for a dangerous tackle.

The Springboks were caught with teary eyes just moments after the whistle was blown and history was made.
