Sports film of the week: Rory McIlroy - Being Number One

Title: Rory McIlroy – Being Number One

Plot: This is the story of Rory’s remarkable 2012 season, as filmed and broadcast by the BBC. It follows the 23-year-old as he clinches the world number one spot for the very first time, returns to Augusta and faces down his Masters demons, adds a second Major to his trophy cabinet and finally — unforgettably — nearly sleeps it out on the final day of the Ryder Cup.

(And yes, he’s asked about the Olympics…)
