Football legend Bale teamed up with captain Colin Montgomerie against their counterpart captain Corey Pavin and former football player Andriy Shevchenko. They registered a stunning victory with a margin of 2-1.

Meanwhile, tennis titan Novak Djokovic teamed up with G4D Tour player Kirk Popert against the team of Formula One Carlos Sainz and Italian G4D Tour golfer Tommaso Perrino. They, too, secured a victory by a margin of 3-1.

The Ryder Cup All-Star match was won by Colin Montgomerie's team and after the victory, Gareth Bale shared a post on Instagram. He wrote in the caption:

Novak Djokovic, a 24-time Grand Slam title winner, was overwhelmed to play golf in a fully packed arena. His 260-yard shot on the fourth hole was a major highlight of the All-Star match. Speaking of that, the tennis ace was quoted as saying by Eurosport:

"This is sporting greatness. I was going to play safe but the crowd made me do it. It was one of the best shots I've ever hit. I've never played golf in front of this many people, so considering my level I think I've played quite well."
