WATCH: Fan breaches security and goes for a dip after Europe seal Ryder Cup

Team Europe clinched the Ryder Cup in what turned out to be a tenser than expected final day at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club thanks to a Team USA fightback led by Patrick Cantlay. 

Ultimately, though, no team had ever come back from a five-point deficit. 

It was Tommy Fleetwood who took Europe to the 14.5 points needed to reclaim the Ryder Cup in the penultimate Sunday singles match against Rickie Fowler. 

The Englishman drove the green at the short par-4th and went on to make a birdie, meaning he couldn't lose the match. 

It wasn't official, but the celebrations could begin for Luke Donald's men. 

And didn't they just. One fan decided to breach security and sprint straight to the pond that guards the green before going for a dip!
