Europe regain the Ryder Cup

Europe regained the Ryder Cup as captain Thomas Bjorn's team reached the 14.5 points they required to beat the United States at a packed Le Golf National on Sunday.

Leading 10-6 going into the 12 singles matches there were some nervous moments on an exciting afternoon as the Americans occasionally threatened a comeback.

But with Ian Pouter taking the total to 13.5 with victory over world number one Dustin Johnson and Francesco Molinari, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson all assured of at least a half the European team could begin to celebrate.

Defeat means the U.S.'s long run of failure on European soil in the biennial team competition goes on. The last time they won away was in 1993.
