Ryder Cup 2010: Seve Ballesteros boosts European stars


Monty reveals Seve's Ryder rallying call

38th Ryder Cup
Venue: Celtic Manor, Newport Date: 1-3 October Starts: 0745 BST on Friday Coverage: Live commentary on BBC Radio 5 live & online, live text commentary online & daily highlights on BBC TWO. Live on Sky Sports 1

Europe's Ryder Cup team received an inspiring phone call from Spanish legend Seve Ballesteros ahead of this weekend's contest at Celtic Manor.

Ballesteros had a glittering Ryder Cup career as a player and captain.

Skipper Colin Montgomerie said the call was "motivational" but also "sad", as Ballesteros is still recovering after operations to remove a brain tumour.

Wales rugby icon Gareth Edwards and former Ryder Cup skippers Ian Woosnam and Sam Torrance also met the team.
