JOHANNESBURG - South Africa, who won the 2019 Rugby World Cup, were named team of the year at the Laureus World Sports Awards, beating Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool and the US women's football team.

Springboks captain Siya Kolisi was joined on stage by six South African team-mates to collect the trophy.

"With this group of players, we came together for the love of the game with one goal and fought so hard for each other," Kolisi told the audience in Berlin.

"We gave everything we had to win the trophy and hopefully inspire kids for generations to come."
