World champions, the Springbok rugby team arrived at OR Tambo International airport this morning to hero's welcome.

The victorious Boks struggled to get themselves through the thousands of enthusiastic supporters and well-wishers.

Supporters had gathered early this morning waiting for their team to arrive. The Springboks were led by captain John Smith to a stage outside the airport building.

The springboks were overwhelmed by the amount of supporters and were pleased with the generous welcome they received. Deputy Sports Minister Gert Oosthuizen and several other dignitaries were also there to greet them at the gate.

The Boks were crowned champions for the second time after beating former champions England 15-6 in the final at the Stade de France in Paris on Saturday.
