WATCH: Australia players sing John Williamson’s True Blue and do push-ups after retaining the Ashes urn

Posted On / /

The Ashes urn will remain in Australia for the next two years as Tim Paine-led side beat hosts England by 185 runs in the 4th Test to take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the five-match series.

The elated Aussies could not keep a lid over their emotions as they broke into celebratory mode at the Old Trafford on Sunday night.

Veteran spinner Nathan Lyon looked to be leading the celebrations as the visitors sang “True Blue” – an Australian folk song written and performed by singer-songwriter John Williamson.

The Australian team also did push-ups on the field. The Baggy Green looked in high spirits after registering an emphatic win over Joe Root & Co.

Tim Paine also became the first Australian captain to retain the Ashes Urn on English soil since Steve Waugh in 2001.

Here are the videos of the celebration:

After the famous win, ‘Man of the match’ Steve Smith said: “It feels amazing to know the urn is coming home. Incredibly special.

“I have been here a few times, things haven’t gone our way, and we haven’t performed to our best of ability in 2013 and 2015. To come back here, I always wanted to tick off my bucket list to get the urn over here. Obviously, there is another game, and we would like to win that. Extremely satisfying.”
