It's been a fantastic Test and I hope you enjoyed the coverage. That's all from Kingsmead from me, Sahil Dutta, and from Andrew Miller. South Africa are a proud sporting nation and will fight back at Cape Town, I hope you'll join us on January 3 at 10.30 am (8.30 am GMT) for what should be a great occasion. For now, all that is left to say is have a very happy new year.

Andrew Strauss describes this as the best performance by an England side away from home he's witnessed. He commends under-pressure batsmen Cook and Bell and again Swann. He thanks the England fans for their support and, as ever, urges England to keep their feet on the ground, saying there is a long way to go in the series. But Strauss will be absolutely thrilled as his careful construction of a world-beating team goes a small step further.

Graeme Swann wins his second successive man of the match award, after he won it at Centurion. He chuckles and looks chipper, describing his year as a dream come true.

Graeme Smith says the collapse was caused by the constant pressure England exerted throughout the game. He believes batting first was the right option, but his side didn't bowl well enough and left South Africa chasing the game from then on. Defending the batsmen, he says the top-six have done the job for a while, and credit should be given to England for being so decisive. Intriguingly, Smith says the right selections need to be made for the next Test.

Andrew Miller's bulletin is ready for you to chew on as we wait for the presentation ceremony.

The England players huddle, woop, highfive, and embrace, but the damage was done yesterday so there is a sense of more quiet satisfaction today.

England win by an innings and 98 runs. A sensational spell last night turned this match, making today almost a formality. 1964 was the last time England beat South Africa by an innings, and after Centurion, where they almost snatched defeat in a crazy spell on the final day, England have been utterly dominant here.

Swann to Steyn, OUT

that's it! Gone! England have won a remarkable victory, Swann has five as Steyn is struck bang in front!

Dale Steyn lbw b Swann 3 (37m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12
Swann to Ntini, 1 run

Ntini plays this neatly, opening the face and guiding it to third man for one

Swann to Steyn, 1 run

pushed into space away for a single to bring Ntini on strike

Swann to Steyn, no run

slightly shorter and Steyn gets back to defend

Swann to Steyn, 2 runs

nicely played, floated up outside off, and driven firmly through the covers

Swann to Steyn, no run

Swann looking for five, but Steyn defends easily enough

Graeme Swann 20-3-50-4
Anderson to Ntini, no run

swinging in from a full length, but it starts wide of off and Ntini leaves alone

Anderson to Ntini, no run

oh, shaping away nicely, far too good for Ntini who plays and misses

England one wicket away now, the Barmy Army are trying to generate some verve and atmosphere. Here comes Makhaya Ntini, for the final time in a Test? They should play a few shots here.

Anderson to Harris, OUT

the full ball does the trick, in the softest of ways. Harris was deep in his crease and ended up chipping it slowly to mid on - Broad - who takes the easiest of catches

Paul Harris c Broad b Anderson 36 (57m 50b 5x4 0x6) SR: 72
Anderson to Harris, no run

back of a length again, which seems strange for a man hanging on his crease, and defended easily enough

Anderson to Harris, no run

outside off again, and left alone, worryingly for England, umpire Saheba has just checked the light

Anderson to Harris, no run

good start, shaping away and Harris, hanging back as usual, fences needlessly outside off

Anderson will replace Broad, who won't, it seems, get a chance to pick up a fifth wicket
