Thomas Bjorn has kept his promise to Europe's victorious Ryder Cup team by having the score of this year's event tattooed on his backside.

In a jubilant news conference following the hosts' emphatic 17.5-10.5 victory over the United States at Le Golf National in September, Europe's players revealed Bjorn had pledged to have a tattoo in a private place if the team regained the trophy.

On Christmas Eve, the official Twitter account of Europe's Ryder Cup team shared a video to show the Dane had kept to his word.


In the video, Bjorn can be seen visiting a tattoo parlour and having the score tattooed on his bottom together with an image of the Ryder Cup trophy.

"Told you I would do it," says Bjorn with a rueful smile at the end of the clip, before uttering "Merry Christmas" and dropping his head to his hands.

Talk about a cheeky way to commemorate a memorable triumph.
