From the BBC: "England's victorious Rugby World Cup team received a heroes' welcome from thousands of fans as they returned home from Australia on Tuesday.
The squad landed at London's Heathrow Airport at 0435GMT and were given a rapturous reception when they emerged from their plane 20 minutes later.
Captain Martin Johnson, grasping the William Webb Ellis Trophy, was the first to appear and was greeted with a deafening rendition of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot", England's unofficial anthem.
He was closely followed by coach Clive Woodward and fly-half Jonny Wilkinson, who secured England's triumph in Saturday's final against Australia by slotting a last-gasp drop goal.
There was a huge roar as the England party were led through passport control and into the arrivals hall by Woodward."
