England claimed an emphatic 3-1 Test series win over South Africa on Monday after a 191-run win in the fourth and final match in Johannesburg.

It was just the second overseas Test series victory for England in four years as Joe Root's young squad showed the side have a bright future.

However, for South Africa, it marked a 108-year low as they lost for the eighth time in their last nine Tests for their worst run since 10 defeats in 11 Tests between 1910 and 1912.
