Yes it's always good to have an historic sporting triumph to keep civil unrest off the front pages...
Congratulations to you and the whole team on your fantastic series win.
It's been sport at its very best, played in a wonderful spirit between two exceptional sides, and has gripped the whole country.
With so many people following this extraordinary series ball by ball, I'm not sure our economy could stand many more days like today - or our nerves any more excitement.
But by bringing the Ashes back after so long, you have given cricket a huge boost and lit up the whole summer.
Congratulations to everyone on an unforgettable series and a fantastic win.
With best wishes
