Remember these pictures from a couple of days ago?
Australia's cricketing heroes were feted by thousands by the quayside in Sydney after their comprehensive 5-0 Ashes whitewash of England.
England's players had their own homecoming on Thursday when their flight landed at Heathrow but it was to a more subdued welcome - if anyone was bothering to notice at all.
It all seemed a bit quiet for coach Andy Flower and his team as they pushed their trollies through the empty spaces although Matt Prior looked to have spotted someone and gave a half-hearted wave.
Better luck next time, lads?
