Cigar-smoking Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez says he ‘is very interested’ in making the grade despite turning 50 last year.

With just 10 months until the teams are selected, Jimenez is currently in line to partner with compatriot Sergio Garcia for Spain.

“Of course I would like to be in the Olympics,” he said.

“Can you imagine Miguel Angel Jimenez in Rio with a big fat cigar, walking through the middle of the Olympic Village with all of the athletes around? I would love that.”
