On Sunday, South Africa took on the hosting nation of Japan in an epic Rugby World Cup match showdown - We emerged victorious, setting up a semi-final against Wales on Sunday 27 October. But in true Japanese fashion, fans accepted defeat in the most gracious manner.

A video by a Japanese singing group called Scrum Unison has been making the rounds on social media. And for the best of reasons!

It shows the singing group and enthusiastic fans singing the South African national anthem. This grew a large crowd outside the one stadium.

See them grab a woman from the crowd, wearing a Springbok jersey of course, to join them in song! It's excellent: 

The group also learned 19 other national anthems for the Rugby World Cup event.

Here is their official rendition of the national anthem on their channel. So well done!
