New Zealand PM John Key Tweets 'Bugger' After America's Cup Loss

It shouldn't have ended like this. Team New Zealand were up 8-1 in the America's Cup and only needed one more race to clinch the title. But then it slipped away and Team USA finished a historic comeback on Wednesday and took home the 34th America's Cup.

We feel your pain sir. And this is what the race looked like from the winning side.
