Union Jacks loud and proud at Gleneagles

British golf fans showed off their colours as Europe beat the United States to claim another Ryder Cup win.

Union Jack socks were among the patriotic items worn by the thousands of supporters at Gleneagles in Scotland over the weekend, while flags were draped over shoulders and faces were painted blue, red and white.

Led by captain Paul McGinley, the European players - themselves sporting blue and white clothing - brushed aside their transatlantic opponents 16½-11½ to make it eight wins out of the last 10 Ryder Cups.

Welsh rookie Jamie Donaldson beat Keegan Bradley 4&3 to take Europe to the 14½ needed to win the Cup outright, having led 10-6 going into the final day on Sunday, to spark jubilant celebrations in the crowd gathered around the 15th green.

The players, including the likes of Rory McIlroy, Ian Poulter and Justin Rose, also celebrated long into the night.
