Germany are a great sporting nation and their stars — across disciplines — gave them enough reason to rejoice on Monday.
The national football team and German golfer Martin Kaymer registered fabulous wins. Interspersed was the joy brought by news of Formula One legend Michael Schumacher coming out of coma.
The day started with 29-year-old Kaymer winning the US Open, his second major, at Pinehurst. Kaymer nicknamed the 'Germinator' dominated proceedings at the Pinehurst Resort with an eight-stroke victory.
