THE WHOLE WORLD erupted when Japan managed to conjure a breathtaking final flourish and claim an historic Rugby World Cup victory over heavyweights South Africa on Saturday.

It will go down as one of the biggest sporting upsets of all time.

The sense of drama in the last few moments was incredible, with the Japanese inching desperately towards the Springboks’ line.

And, when you watch with Japanese commentary, it’s even better!
