Both their historic silver win and perfect interview skills have won Gary and Paul O'Donovan fans from across the globe.

If you watch one thing from the Olympics, make it Paul and Gary O'Donovan's brilliant interview following their impressive Rio 2016 performance.

Ireland’s only medalists of this year's games have taken the venue city by storm after the two brothers powered to silver in the men’s lightweight double sculls.

The medal winning Irish rowers, who have been winning hearts around the globe with hilarious comments in interviews, have gone one step better.

The O’Donovans are well-known in their homeland for some fiercely hilarious post-row interviews and when they joined RTE live from Rio to reflect on their achievement, they were in top form.
