An amateur golfer was given the shock of his life when he opened the door to Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn – after ruling himself out of the Dane’s European team.

But Bjorn decided that posting on social media wasn’t enough and instead travelled to Ascot in Berkshire to pay the practical joker a visit in person.
