Austria's men and the Netherlands women both regained their crowns as the Indoor Hockey World Cup came to an end in Pretoria.

In the men's final, Michael Körper gave the defending champions the lead a minute before the end of the first quarter against The Netherlands.

However, just seconds later the Dutch struck back courtesy of Max Sweering who put one in off a penalty stroke.

Both sides then scored again in the second period to go into the half-time break at 2-2.

The Netherlands then led twice in the second half, but Körper completed his hattrick to once again draw level at 4-4, sending the title decider to a shootout, which the Austrians edged 3-2 for victory.

"Unbelievable, unbelievable," said Austrian captain, Leon Thörnblom.

"You tend to say a lot but when you do it, it’s just a different feeling.

"I have no words, I can't explain it… just unbelievable.

"I'm so happy."

Iran clinched the men's bronze medal with a shootout win against the United States following a 4-4 finish in normal time.

While the Austrian men were crowned world champions for a second time, the women were seeking a first-ever world title when they also took on The Netherlands in their final.

However, it quickly turned into a rout as the Dutch romped to a 7-0 demolition job.

"I'm so proud," said star of the show Mabel Brands who scored a superb hattrick.

"We did a really good job, we prepared well and we executed it.

"It's special, really special - I will never forget it."

Hosts South Africa took on the Czech Republic in the women's third place playoff but they were unable to finish on the podium in front of the home crowd, falling to a 3-1 loss.
