Caddie Tevez put to work by compatriot Romero

5:47 am on 23 July 2012

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez won't be packing in the day job but the Argentina football international had an unlikely role at the British Open when he carried compatriot Andres Romero's bag on the final round.

An unshaven Tevez, grinning broadly all the way round, was not able to inspire his friend who carded four double-bogeys and a solitary birdie to close with a dismal 82 to finish on 18 over and rock-bottom of the field.

City manager Roberto Mancini will hope Tevez, who has had back injuries in the past, did not over-exert himself by lugging Romero's clubs for four hours with the start of the club's Premier League title defence just four weeks away.
