Premier League stars Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain celebrated with Europe’s heroes after they won the 42nd Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in Paris on Sunday.
The former Arsenal team-mates had backstage passes and the likes of Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Ian Poulter were more than happy to let them join in the party after USA were beaten.
Ramsey, who played in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday, and Oxlade-Chamberlain, currently out with a long-term knee injury, are both avid golf fans.

The pair played together at Arsenal for six years before Oxlade-Chamberlain’s departure for Liverpool last year and renowned Gunners fan Poulter seemed thrilled to share the moment with them.
Veteran Poulter was one of the stars of the show for Europe, winning his match with world No 1 Dustin Johnson on the 18th hole.
He donned a postbox outfit in reference to his ‘postman’ nickname. The saying goes that Postman Poulter always delivers and he did not disappoint as Europe overcame a shaky start to the day to win comfortably.
Ramsey is set to leave Arsenal on the expiry of his contract at the end of the season with Chelsea and Manchester United among those interested.

Chelsea fan Rose and United fan McIlroy may well have had a word in the Welshman’s ear as he celebrated with them backstage at Le Golf National.
Also among the backstage celebrations was Ramsey’s fellow countryman and former rugby star Mike Phillips. The 94-cap former British and Irish Lion would have been thrilled with Europe’s performance too.
