It appears this morning there could be a chink light in the tunnel that is the Greek debt crisis after Rory McIlroy agreed in principle to bail them out.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras who today faces a looming deadline to repay a €1.6bn (£1.1bn) loan to the IMF greeted the news with guarded optimism.

"He does realize we are up shit creek to the tune of 320 billion Euro and he hasn't a notion of ever seeing a cent of it again?" said Tsipras at a hastily arranged press conference.  "We could offer him a week self catering in Santorini and maybe throw in a few pool towels?"

McIlroy himself told reporters this sudden generosity has nothing whatsoever to do with Jordan Spieth getting all the headlines recently for being a super nice guy and better at golf than him.

"Not at all," said the World Number One. "I just happened to be doing a Nike photoshoot alongside European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and he happened to mention Greece were stuck for a few quid.  I'm happy to help out this person product or event. And sure if it doesn't work I can always take them to court and say I hadn't a clue what I was doing when I signed away the money!"
More as it emerges.
