World champions South Africa arrived back in the country on Tuesday to a heroes’ welcome, following a feat that saw them defend their Rugby World Cup title after beating New Zealand 12-11 in the 2023 final at the Stade de France in Paris, France on Saturday.
Thousands of Springboks supporters braved the cold and wet weather to gather at O.R. Tambo International Airport to welcome home the squad, as South Africa became first nation to lift the Rugby World Cup on four occasions.
The crowds went into a frenzy as Springboks captain Siya Kolisi entered the arrivals terminal hoisting the Webb Ellis trophy surrounded by the rest of his team-mates.
