Jack Riewoldt sure knows how to celebrate a victory.
After Saturday evening’s historic victory in the AFL Grand Final, the Tigers tall forward has commemorated the win by taking part in the latest TikTok challenge.
Richmond defeated the Geelong Cats 12.9 (81) to 7.8 (50) to secure their third AFL premiership in four years.
Although Dustin Martin once again proved a destructive force in footy finals, Riewoldt’s accurate kicking in the second half ensured a Geelong comeback wasn’t possible.
The 31-year-old booted two goals and two behinds after halftime, also contributing nine disposals and three marks in the 31-point victory.

On Sunday afternoon, Riewoldt uploaded a video to Instagram of himself and Tigers teammate Tom Lynch riding a golf cart.
Contributing to the popular TikTok trend, Riewoldt mouthed the lyrics of Fleetwood Mac’s 1997 hit “Dreams”, before taking a sip of (presumably) beer from the McClelland Trophy.
Donning a pair of shades with his premiership medal around his neck, the Richmond veteran was seemingly living the dream after Saturday night’s triumph.

Australian tennis champions Dylan Alcott commented: “This is great. Congrats brother well deserved.”
Richmond great Matthew Richardson replied: “Well played.”
St Kilda legend and cousin Nick Riewoldt also expressed his love for the clip on social media.
Two hours after sharing the video to his 88,300 followers, the post had quickly acquired over 19,000 likes.

Riewoldt’s celebrations even overshadowed the legendary partying of teammate Martin.
The perfect Instagram video made Riewoldt the centre of the Tigers universe once again — just as he was in the club’s breakthrough 2017 Grand Final when he stole the show with his celebratory antics with American rockers The Killers.
Riewoldt’s cameo on stage during a post-game show where he stole a microphone and belted out Mr Brightside became one of the stories of the season.
While Martin’s premiership celebrations and end-of-season trip from the 2019 Tigers premiership has become the stuff of legend — after he famously left his car at the MCG for two months — Riewoldt was the original party animal and he took the title back on Sunday.
During the aftermath of the Grand Final in Brisbane, Riewoldt explained why he believed three-time Norm Smith medallist Martin was the sport’s best player of the past decade.
“I always say Alex Rance is the greatest player I’ve ever played with,” Riewoldt told Fox Footy.
“But clearly Dustin is now. He’s the best player we’ve probably seen in the last decade.
“Everyone sees his on-field but I can tell you right now, he’s a better person than he is a player. That is how special he is to this group. He has grown so much over the last 11 years.”
