Europe have retained the Ryder Cup in unforgettable fashion, matching the largest-ever comeback on the final day to beat the United States at Medinah.
Europe 14.5-13.5 United States
Wearing navy and white in a tribute to the late Seve Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olazabal's side produced a sensational recovery from 10-6 down, equalling that achieved by the home side at Brookline in 1999.
They won the first five singles matches and further victories from Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood meant it came down to former world number one Martin Kaymer in match 11.
He led Steve Stricker by one hole playing the 18th and after leaving himself a six-foot putt to win the match, somehow held his nerve to complete an extraordinary day.
