USA won back the Ryder Cup for the first time since 2008 after a dominant final day performance, and it all proved too much for Bubba Watson.

Despite not swinging a club, and holding a role that has been described as fellow vice captain Padraig Harrington as one of sports biggest jollies, Watson cried, and cried, and cried.

The reaction online was one of scorn and confusing, with people both slagging Watson, while also querying why he was so emotional in the first place.
