Team Europe walk away from the Ryder Cup as deserved winners with Francesco Molinari securing the winning point during a dominating display. 

Furthermore, for one of the first times ever, every Team Europe player recorded a point in a magnificent team performance over Team USA. 

Captain Thomas Bjorn was widely praised for how he brought Europe's big names together and the joyous scenes in Paris quickly went viral.

Since the victory, Team Europe have gone onto share the video which helped spur them on in their hour of need.

Bjorn and co. showed the motivational clip the night before the opening fourballs session on Friday.

As you can see below, it features some Ryder Cup folklore in the form of Brian Huggett, Sam Torrance, and Jose Maria Olazabal. 

In a stirring montage, the latter also pays an emotional tribute to legend Seve Ballesteros.

"Seve showed me there are times where you need to reach into the depths of your soul to see you through.” 

And the final statement summed up exactly what the Ryder Cup means.

“When you stand there on your final rounds, remember, there is a tomorrow as a Ryder Cup winner or there is a tomorrow where you’re not.”

How could they not be motivated after watching that?

Team Europe can be credited for the amount of passion and desire that the side put into this Ryder Cup, with images of Ian Poulter sinking a put with jubilation certainly proving that. However, the Ryder Cup brought some unlikely heroes to the limelight. 

Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari formed a particularly formidable partnership.


Fans became obsessed with the pair and a chant for Fleetwood and Molinari was created following their successful performances. 

Furthermore, the pair played their part on social media as a video was revealed of the pair waking up in bed together alongside the Ryder Cup.
