Naas man Hume was again victorious in his foursomes, while he and Luca Cianchetti were on the verge of victory in the fourballs when darkness forced play to be suspended - with Europe leading 12.5-6.5.

They will resume this morning three-up with three holes to play.

Victory this morning will put Europe 13.5-6.5 up and needing just 2.5 points from today's 12 singles contests to retain the trophy.

Hume teamed up with David Boote for yesterday's foursomes as they beat Chinese duo Han-Ting Chiu and Chun-An Yu on the last.

Meanwhile Europe's ladies - competing without ill Irish star Olivia Mehaffey - produced a stirring fightback against Asia Pacific on day two to put themselves back in contention to win.
