Pride for Africa as Spain strike gold

South Africa put on a show. It was decorated by an octopus, exhilarating individuals, wonder goals, 11th-hour drama, the unlikeliest of undefeatables and an inimitable style sweeping Spain to glory. Andres Iniesta's 116th-minute winner against the Netherlands put La Roja into the record books as the eighth country to capture football's most prized crown.
