Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia have started the celebrations early at the Ryder Cup by copying Cristiano Ronaldo's famous trademark goal celebration.
Ronaldo, who recently returned to Manchester United where he has scored four goals in the last three games, performs a mid-air pirouette before exclaiming 'siu' (Spanish for 'yes') upon landing.
WATCH RORY AND SERGIO GIVE IT A GO!
“Siuuuuuuuu”— Goal (@goal) September 11, 2021

McIlroy was understandably keen to give the celebration go as he is an avid Manchester United fan, while Garcia, who is apparently a very good footballer in his own right, is a big Real Madrid fan - one of the former clubs of Ronaldo.
Garcia also took part in the honorary kick-off in the El Classico match between Real Madrid and Barcelona shortly after he won his maiden major title at The Masters in 2017.
We will no doubt be seeing a bit more of the Ronaldo celebration should Europe end up retaining the Ryder Cup this Sunday evening.
Here's how a number of golf fans reacted on Twitter to McIlroy and Garcia doing Ronaldo's 'siu' celebration:
