AS Rory McIlroy celebrated becoming US Open Champion, he posted this picture of the trophy to Twitter.

It's very much in character -- the 22-year-old is one of the most prolific tweeters in Irish sport.

He yesterday wrote: "Thanks to everyone for all the messages over the past few hours. It was a very special week for me. Proud to be a major champion!"
