Japan stunned two-time champions South Africa to cause arguably the biggest upset in rugby union history.

Karne Hesketh crossed in the final minute to win an incredible World Cup Pool B encounter in Brighton.

South Africa led 12-10 after Francois Louw and Bismark du Plessis tries.

Lood de Jager and Adriaan Strauss also scored for the Springboks, but Ayumu Goromaru contributed 24 points, including a try, before Hesketh’s dramatic clincher.

Japan had not won a World Cup game since 1991, while South Africa were world champions in both 1995 and 2007.
