Well, that's a wrap folks: the 2018 Hong Kong Sevens concluded last night, with Fiji winning the tournament for the fourth time in a row.

Famous for its lively and boozy atmosphere, which is likely unparalleled in the sporting world, the annual Sevens rugby tournament is three days of out-of-control boozing and bizarre costumes. Oh, and rugby, obviously. 

Kenya came second, falling to Fiji 24-12, while the South African squad beat New Zealand to take home the bronze medal. 

Below, a photographic roundup of the tournament’s most outrageous moments and costumes from on-the-ground That’s correspondent Lena Gidwani.
