Europe's amazing Ryder Cup victory yesterday was influenced by former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola!

Guardiola was the one celebrity guest in the European team room, says the Daily Mail.

He is taking a year out from football living in New York with his family in an Upper West Side apartment costing £19,000 a month to rent.

Also in Medinah were former Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish and David Sheepshanks, chairman of the FA's St George's Park.

Both are friends of Europe PGA chief Sandy Jones.
