Golf-McIlroy suffers severe ankle injury ahead of British Open

LONDON, July 6 (Reuters) - Rory McIlroy's defence of golf's British Open has been thrown into doubt after he said on Monday that he had ruptured ankle ligaments in a friendly football match with his friends.

"Total rupture of left ATFL (ankle ligament) and associated joint capsule damage in a soccer kickabout," McIlroy wrote on his Instagram account.

The Open at St Andrews takes place on July 16-19.
