Cape Town - South Africans supporting New Zealand reportedly spat at team members of the Springbok Sevens team after they beat the All Black Sevens side in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.

The Blitzbokke beat New Zealand 17-14 to win the third tournament of the IRB Sevens World Series in what was a timely tribute to recently deceased former president Nelson Mandela.

However, celebrations were somewhat soured when a few South Africans misbehaved while the Blitzbokke were doing a victory lap around the field.

SuperSport rugby writer, Brenden Nel, who was at the stadium reporting on the tournament, revealed the following via his official Twitter account:

"Bok Sevens team members tell how they were sworn at and spat at by South African All Black supporters on their victory lap. Classy."
