Europe needed to win their last three singles matches to seal an outstanding 14½-13½ Solheim Cup victory over the United States at Gleneagles.
British Bronte Law, who moments earlier won her match on the 17th, sprinted up the 18th fairway to join the celebrations after wildcard pick Suzann Pettersen of Norway holed an eight-foot putt on the last to win the trophy.
American Marina Alex missed a 10-foot putt to halve her match with Pettersen to earn a 14th point that would have seen the US retain the trophy. While Pettersen sized up her putt to win her match to put Europe on 13½ points, Law was sealing that point back on the 17th.
Pettersen then scored a birdie to seal the win and spark wild celebrations as they clinched their sixth Solheim Cup.
