maxresdefault 3 - Watch Live: Springboks Present Webb Ellis Cup At Union Buildings

The Spribgboks have arrived at the Union Buildings in Pretoria in an open-top bus showing off the Web Ellis trophy.

The team arrived back from Japan this week after winning the Rugby World Cup.

Fans have lined the streets, waving their flags and singing the national anthem.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is welcoming the team before they depart on their open-top bus tour.

The fan numbers are growing, as South Africans continue to arrive in their green and gold jerseys to get a glimpse of their World Cup-winning heroes.

Fans said they were in the city to congratulate the team.

“Well it’s not the first time, it’s the third time, so we’ve matched the All Blacks and I think we’ve played less games than they’ve played, so we’re better than they are,” one fan quipped.

“We’re here to celebrate the Boks’ victory and we’re so proud of South Africa and the unity and united sense that came back in this very difficult time,” another fan said.

The tour is set to move from the Union Buildings towards the Loftus Versfeld Stadium and then Tshwane House before moving to Johannesburg.

TMPD’s Isaac Mahamba said that several roads in the capital would be affected.

“The affected streets include the following: Jan Shoba, Burnett, Park Street, Kirkness, Lynwood Road, Paul Kruger, Madiba and Lilian Ngoyi. As the convoy passes, they will immediately reopen.”
