Cape Town - All Blacks star Sonny Bills Williams has paid his respect to the Springboks after their thrilling Rugby Championship clash at Newlands on Saturday.

As it happened: Springboks v All Blacks

The Test, which ended 25-24 in the favour of the world champion New Zealanders, will forever be remembered as one of the "classic" installments of the now 95-Test history between the sides.

Williams, a fan favourites in the country, especially in Cape Town, took to Twitter post-Test, writing: Special night with the brothers in Capetown. A test we won't forget for a long time. Respect to the Springboks & our South African fans ??

In an earlier tweet, Williams thanked Cape Town for a "great week".
