Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry led chants of 'USA is terrified' to the tune of dance hit Freed from Desire as Team Europe celebrated regaining the Ryder Cup in style on their coach last night.

McIlroy - who led Team Europe to victory just hours after clashing with a Team USA caddie in a car park - was in a celebratory mood as he sang at the top of his voice, guzzled champagne straight from the bottle and took a swig from the Ryder Cup trophy.

Luke Donald's side had plenty to sing about after Tommy Fleetwood secured the winning point as Team Europe put the demons of 2021 behind them to win 16.5 - 11.5 at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Rome.

McIlroy - who beat Sam Burns 3&1 in their singles clash before Europe's win - and Lowry - who won three out of four holes before the 18th - were filmed jumping up and down on the team bus singing their hearts out.

They were joined by the rest of Team Europe in singing: 'Europe's on fire, USA are terrified!'

The official Ryder Cup social media account provided fans with an extraordinary behind-the-scenes glimpse into the celebrations in the eternal city throughout the night.

Lowry and McIlroy were also filmed drinking from the Ryder Cup while Queen's 'We are the Champions' rang out in the background. Captain Donald was seen leading the players in a rendition of the iconic song.

Other hilarious footage showed Francesco Molinari dancing in the aisle of the coach as the rest of the team chanted Tommy Fleetwood's name after the Englishman clinched the Ryder Cup.

The Ryder Cup stars were in a rowdy mood and all got behind Scottish star Robert MacIntyre as he sang The Proclaimers' hit I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) at the top of his voice while holding a beer.

McIlroy has taken centre stage among the Ryder Cup celebrations, visibly riding high on an outstanding three days of golf which was also filled with plenty of controversy.

The Northern Irish star was visibly emotional during an interview after Team Europe secured their victory as he got redemption for his disappointing performance at Whistling Straits three years ago.

McIlroy cruised to victory over America's Sam Burns as the hosts won for the seventh time in a row in Europe, eventually crushing the visitors in Rome.

After a strong US fightback had frayed nerves, Tommy Fleetwood ensured his side would take the honors by securing the half-point needed with a stunning drive to 23 feet at the par-four 16th.

McIlroy won his first three matches at Marco Simone but lost the final fourball on Saturday evening which took a vicious turn when he became embroiled in an angry exchange with Patrick Cantlay's caddie Joe LaCava over his celebrations on the 18th green.

The row then spilled over into the car park and McIlroy had to be bundled into a waiting car by team-mate Shane Lowry amid astonishing scenes.

The 34-year-old was left furious when LaCava stood in his line of vision twirling his cap as he attempted to line up what would have been a match-saving
