Cape Town - Springbok great Joel Stransky took a midnight swim in Wellington Harbour to celebrate South Africa's shock win over the All Blacks last Saturday.

Stransky and fellow SuperSport commentator Matt Pearce both took a dip in the chilly harbour to celebrate the 36-34 victory.

It was just the 36th victory for the Boks over All Blacks in what was the 96th Test between the two fierce rivals - and the Boks' first win in New Zealand since 2009.

Stransky, who played 22 Tests for South Africa, is most famous for kicking the winning drop-goal in extra-time in the 1995 Rugby World Cup final against the All Blacks at Ellis Park in Johannesburg.
