Last Updated: 06/07/17 11:00pm
Joe Root celebrated his maiden Test as England captain by striking his 12th hundred on day one of the first Test against South Africa, at Lord's.
Root, England's 80th Test skipper, kissed the badge on his helmet and raised both arms in the air after reaching the milestone off 150 balls.
Dropped on 16 by JP Duminy, Root cashed in to become only the sixth man to score three figures in his first match as captain - the most recent of which was former skipper Alastair Cook, against Bangladesh in 2010.
Root (184no) led from the front, sharing a crucial fifth-wicket stand of 114 with vice-captain Ben Stokes (56) after Vernon Philander's three wickets had reduced the hosts to 76-4 in the opening session - Stokes eventually top-edging a pull off Kagiso Rabada to wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.
The 26-year-old went on to post an unbroken sixth-wicket partnership of 167 with Moeen Ali (61no) - having been stumped off a Keshav Maharaj no ball when he was on 149 - as England closed on 357-5.
Philander ousted Alastair Cook (3), Keaton Jennings (8) and Jonny Bairstow (10) in the morning, while Morne Morkel accounted for Gary Ballance (20) on the batsman's recall to the England side.
