BBC Sport's advent calendar - 19 December

On day 19 of BBC Sport's advent calendar we remember the inauspicious start to Europe's Ryder Cup singles battle in October as Rory McIlroy has to dash to make his tee time after a mix-up with his alarm clock.

The world number one went on to win his singles match with Keegan Bradley as Europe staged a remarkable comeback to win by a single point.
