Thomas Bjorn has been named as the captain of Team Europe for the 2018 Ryder Cup.
The 45-year-old Dane will become the first Scandinavian to fill the position as Europe look to win back the cup after Team USA's victory in Hazeltine earlier this year.
Bjorn has represented Europe on three occasions - 1997, 2002 and 2014 - with victories each time.
"It's a huge honour for me to be named European captain for the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris. This is one of the greatest days in my career," Bjorn said in a statement.
"I studied a lot of captains as a player and as a vice captain and always wondered what that feeling would be like to be the one leading out a team of 12 great players. Now it's my turn to do just that and it is an exciting moment for me.
"I have lived and breathed the European Tour for so long, and now I will do the same with The Ryder Cup for the next two years. I'm very much looking forward to taking on this task."
The next edition of the competition will be held in September 2018 at Le Golf National in France.
