Darren Clarke will attempt to muscle his rather more sizeable frame into Paul McGinley's shoes after being appointed European Ryder Cup captain for 2016.

The 46-year-old Northern Irishman will bid to lead the Europeans to an eighth win from the last nine matches against the United States in Minnesota from 30 September to 2 October. 

From fast cars and fat cigars, Claret Jug and Ryder Cup, and XXL to medium, we recall Clarke's colourful career.
