South Africa flanker Pieter-Steph du Toit was named World Rugby Player of the Year on Sunday, in a clean sweep of the main awards for the World Cup-winning Springboks.

Rassie Erasmus won coach of the year and South Africa took the team of the year award at a glittering ceremory in Tokyo, a day after they lifted the Webb Ellis Cup for the third time.
