Australian cricket fans gathered at the Sydney Opera House to greet the victorious Ashes team on Tuesday.

 

Michael Clarke-led Australia whitewashed England 5-0.

 

The players were introduced on stage alongside Prime Minster Tony Abbott, minus veteran opener Chris Rogers, who turned up late after his alarm failed to go off.

 

Clarke hailed the support from fans throughout the series, including a new world record crowd of 91,092 on the opening day of the fourth Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

 

The players will return to their home states on Wednesday ahead of the upcoming one-day series against England, which starts in Melbourne on Sunday.

 

Mitchell Johnson, however, disappointed when he said that he will shave off his moustache.
