New Zealand's Men made it a RWC Sevens double for their country as they followed up the Women's team's win, beating England 33-0 in the final.

The IRB World Series champions emerged victorious while New Zealand's Women became world champions after they beat Canada 29-12.

The last day of matches at the Olympic Stadium were delayed after a thunderstorm stopped play.

But the weather couldn't dampen the spirits of the New Zealanders, who will fly home from Moscow with both trophies deservedly safely in their grasp.

After the final whistle, New Zealand captain DJ Forbes was left delighted, saying: "This is truly a humbling experience and I'm almost lost for words. I'm just so proud of the boys. This win is for the boys, the management here and everyone back home. It's really great to get another trophy."
