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.
