Europe regain Ryder Cup

Team Europe regained the Ryder Cup after Francesco Molinari - with his fifth win from five matches - sealed the decisive point to defeat the United States at Le Golf National.

The result means the USA have still not won on European soil in 25 years, their troubles summed up by Tiger Woods' 0-4 record this weekend.

Thomas Bjorn's side had to hold off a fightback from the visitors, who at one point cut the gap to a solitary point, but reached the 14.5 points needed to secure the victory courtesy of Open champion Molinari's 4 and 2 win over Phil Mickelson.

The Italian became the first European player to finish with a 5-0 record, having won four matches alongside Tommy Fleetwood.
