England won the World Cup for the first time as they beat New Zealand in a Super Over after a nerve-shredding final ended in a tie at Lord's on Sunday.
After Eoin Morgan's side finished on 241 all out in pursuit of New Zealand's 241-8, the match was forced into the Super Over, which was also tied and Morgan's side triumphed on boundary count during the match - 26 to 17.
The English fans couldn't contain their excitement as their team lifted the World Cup after a 44-year long wait and the celebrations still don't seem to have come to an end.
One such ecstatic fan is Twitter user Gwen's (@gwenfs1) grandmother, who's video celebrating the triumph has become viral on Twitter.
The video shows Gwen's grandmother watching the England cricket team lift their maiden World Cup title.
Her reaction to the win is priceless and shows what the triumph meant to them.
The video has received thousands of comments appreciating the elderly fan's passion for the game of cricket.
