Below is an excerpt from Reuters.com about how the German Team triumphed in their games with class. The reaction of the German team and coach to the victory was quite restrained and mature, and specifically noted that they demonstrated no schadenfreude.
Side note: Schadenfreude means "enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others." It comes from the German words for "damage" and "joy."
