They're hardly the first former winner to embarrass themselves while attempting to defend the crown, though - in the five World Cups of the 21st century, they are now the fourth titleholder to fail to reach the last 16.

Australia's Sarah Jane Smith has seized a share of the first-round lead at the US Women's Open at Shoal Creek in Alabama.
