    And that, I think, is my cue to leave.

    Thanks for your company. It's been a ridiculously fun tournament. I'll leave you with the winning moment, as England head off into the night to celebrate becoming world champions.

    In a bit!

    When India's men played in the World Cup in England in 1999, female members had only just been permitted to enter the Long Room.

    And here we are today.

    Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

    Mark Robinson has brought a lot to this side. He pushed hard on fitness understands the individual. He has toughened them up.

    So many times we have seen England give it away but we have had loads of occasions in this tournament where they have got over the line. That mentality has shifted. Him bringing his experience from the professional game has had an impact in this environment.

  4. 'This can be a springboard'

    More from Heather Knight: "What a tournament it has been. The support, the cricket and everything about it. Hopefully this can be a springboard for women's cricket in this country and around the world."

  6. 'The youngsters tried their best'

    More from India captain Mithali Raj: "Thank you to the crowd for turning up. It is a huge boost to play in front of a packed stadium.

    "These girls are inexperienced of this platform, playing in their first final. The youngsters tried their best and I am sure this will help them in the future. I will definitely play for a few more years but I don't see myself playing the next World Cup."

  7. 'Anya Shrubsole - what a hero'

    England captain Heather Knight at the presentation: "I can't stop smiling. I am so proud of this group of girls. We made it hard for ourselves but I couldn't care less.

    "We won tight games and that was something we wanted to work on. Back in Delhi (when England lost the World Twenty20) was a long time ago but it was the making of this team. Anya Shrubsole - what a hero.

    "India were batting brilliantly and put good partnerships together. We knew if we hung in and kept the rate at five or six then we would always be in the game and we held out nerve."

  8. 'We panicked'

    India captain Mithali Raj: "It wasn't easy for England but credit to them. They kept their nerve. There was a time when the match was in the balance. We panicked and they came out victorious.

    "I would like to tell the girls I am very proud of them. They didn't make any match look easy for the opposition."

    The world champions. As the trophy was lifted, I got covered in tickertape and a man next to me screamed "go pyro" into a walkie-talkie. On cue, fireworks shot into the London air.

    England take a swig of champagne pose for some more photos, then head off for a lap of honour. It's great to see the stands still absolutely packed out.

  11. 'It's been a rollercoaster'

    England's Sarah Taylor: "I am so proud of the girls. We knew if we stuck in the game and built dots and pressure we would get there.

    "It has been a been rollercoaster for myself. To be part of this team is incredible. It was a case of getting healthy and to be part of something. It was pot luck to be back for this World Cup. This is amazing."

  12. Post update

    Heather Knight goes running back to her team, grabs the trophy and holds it high above her head! Champagne goes spraying everywhere as Knight cradles the trophy, before she passes it down the line to all her team-mates.

    England. World champions. Drink it in, folks.

  13. Post update

    There's tears all over the place. Katherine Brunt is heckling Heather Knight with a yell of "we love you, Heather!" Danielle Hazell is half laughing, half crying. What a day.

  14. Post update

    A ceremonial handing over from England to New Zealand, who will host the next World Cup - far as I can tell, they pass a box over - before England come up to receive their medals. Heather Knight really wants to get her hands on that trophy, but she'll have to wait another minute or two...

    Winners are grinners.

  17. 'I'm lost for words'

    Anya Shrubsole at the post-match presentation: "I am a little lost for words. It was an amazing performance from everyone. We could have easily fallen away but to stay in the game and be world champions is amazing.

    "One defeat was never going to put us out of the World Cup but we showed a huge amount of fight and that was epitomised by today."

  18. Player of the tournament - Tammy Beaumont

    Tammy Beaumont, the leading run scorer in the tournament, is named player of the tournament. She's got an almighty grin on her face as she clutches her trophy.
