Seve Ballesteros dressed in his favourite golf clothing after his death

The family of golf great Seve Ballesteros dressed the great man in his favourite golf clothing after his death.

He was dressed in a pair of navy golf trousers and a navy sweater, which he always wore on the final day of tournaments, days he referred to as his "Sundays of glory".

Ballesteros' brother Baldomero said he thought it was best that Seve was dressed in his favourite golf clothing and he also revealed touching details of the two-time Masters champion's final moments.

Baldomero said: "He said goodbye to everyone individually. We grabbed hands, whispered to us. I told him closely, 'I love you.' And Seve replied, 'I love you, too'."

The funeral, held in Ballasteros' home village of Pedrena, attracted greats from the game of golf.

Nick Faldo, Colin Montgomerie and Sam Torrence were all in attendance alongside Jose Maria Olazabal, who Seve enjoyed a great partnership with in many Ryder Cup competitions.
