Play came to a sudden halt at the Ryder Cup today when it emerged that Justin Rose was stung by a wasp on the 10th hole.

Ever the professional, Rose regathered and made a monster putt to make par and go on to win his fourballs match and take the point for Europe.

He later told BBC5Live he deserved the sting after driving his ball into the water on the ninth.

"I deserved to get stung after hitting my second in the water on nine. My thumb is swollen but it's all good."
