After a poor start in the Ryder Cup, Europe finally have some momentum going into Saturday.
That's in no small part down to Rory McIlroy, who sealed a 3 and 2 triumph alongside Belgian Thomas Pieters in his fourballs match. And it's safe to say, he was pretty pleased about it.
The Northern Irishman isn't always the most animated or excited of sportsmen, but he made no secret of just how much this point meant to him.

Europe's golfers have been in for a tough time, with the US crowd jeering them since the tournament began. That's only to be expected, but McIlroy still took the opportunity for a little revenge.
After clinching a 20-foot eagle putt, he decided to celebrate in style. To make matters even funnier, he later admitted that he planned the whole thing - so he must have been feeling confident.
As a response to the hostile reception he's been getting from the home crowd, he finished by taking a bow towards them and saying "you're welcome for the show". Then, he just went a bit mad.
Amidst the celebrations, he even forgot to shake one opponent's hand, but that's got to just be down to over-excitement.
Europe up against it
Take a look at his epic reaction here:
"I thought about the celebration before I hit the putt," he told Golf.com.
"I wanted everyone to know how much this means to me."
Of course, this wasn't the first time McIlroy has lit up this year's Ryder Cup with his hilarious reactions. Clearly taking objection to being heckled by one spectator, he challenged him to seal a 12-foot putt - which, fate would have it, he did - leaving the world number three red-faced.
On this occasion, though, McIlroy had every right to be delighted as Europe surged back into it. Friday was a mixed day for both teams, so this victory over US pair Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar could be huge going forward.
