Euphoric Spanish soccer fans are in party mode, following their team's victory. Spain now simultaneously hold the World Cup and European Championship titles.
There were tears of joy, as fireworks lit up the night sky.
Andres Iniesta's goal deep into extra time sparked the celebrations amongst Spanish fans inside Johannesburg's Soccer City stadium.
A Spanish fan said, "It's very satisfying after such a long wait to win this. It's been a long time coming. We've always been so close, but finally we got it. It's the best feeling in the world."
Over in Madrid, more than a hundred thousand people watched the game on giant screens in the city center. And the tense nature of the match made the outpouring of emotions stronger on the final whistle.
A Spanish fan said, "They were just great. Iniesta is just the greatest, and Casillas played a great game."
"I have never seen anything like this. We have to live it, party now, yeah!"
"This is incredible! I love you, I love you Spain."
Spain's victory was celebrated in many other parts of the world. In southern Lebanon, Spanish peacekeepers serving in a UN mission were euphoric.
A Spanish peacekeeper said, "We always dreamt about Spain winning a World Cup and since this is the first time, and since we're not in our country, we have to celebrate."
Spain enters the record books as the first European team to win a World Cup outside their own continent.
The players are expected to return to Madrid on Monday. Following a victory parade around the capital, they will join a huge party on the banks of the river Manzanares.
