In a statement, Vodafone chief executive, Pradeep Lal, said this is by far the greatest achievement in our sporting history and surely the highlight of the playing career of the players involved.

LAL: “Congratulations to the boys on this magical and historical win. The 7s boys have raised our Fiji Flag higher than many bigger and mightier nations. They have proved that as a small country, we can also win on the world stage against the big guns. We dared to dream gold and we conquered. The win is Power to the Nation.”

Mr Lal said the win simply highlights that no mission is impossible and no challenge insurmountable.

LAL: “The win has lifted the spirit of the entire population and united us all as Fijians in a mood of frenzy celebrations. Today, Fiji stands proud, shoulder-to-shoulder with much bigger nations as a gold medal winner at the pinnacle of the sporting excellence – the Olympics.”

He said they are now getting ready to welcome the team back next week.

LAL: “We now stand ready to welcome home our Heroes in what we expect to be a rousing welcome and memorable celebration. Our hearty congratulations to all the players, Captain Osea Kolinisau, Coach Ben Ryan and all support staff and to the Fiji Rugby Union for bestowing such huge honor to our beloved Fiji.”
