Carlos Tevez's impromptu appearance at the Open as a caddie has been criticised by the Royal and Ancient championship committee chairman, Jim McArthur.

The Manchester City striker carried the bags for fellow Argentine Andres Romero on the final day of the championship.

McArthur said: "We may need to look at this particular case. The strange thing for me was he never put the bag down so when he was standing on the green he was carrying the bag all over the place. It's just absolute madness.

"Maybe it's something we need to just have a look at. We do normally get a list of caddies at the beginning of the week and we take that into account."
