Pakistan emerged victorious from a close contest against India in the final of the Kabaddi World Cup on Sunday in Lahore's Punjab Stadium.

The hosts won 43-41 to become kabaddi world champions for the first time and bring the trophy home.

Congratulatory messages started coming in as fans took to Twitter to express their pride for the sheer determination and ferociousness the team displayed on national television.

Some are, well, at a loss of words...

While others are taking clever digs at internal politics. Where is the lie though?

Malka-e-Bartania is confident Pakistan is prepared to conquer all future wins courtesy of Mr. Khan

But Indian professors are of course, still in disbelief...

In other news, we suggest Chacha Lame Monk changes his name to Chacha Sour Monk because clearly he’s having some trouble digesting defeat.

We extend our heartiest congratulations to the team!
