Former jockey AP McCoy has revealed he is still "struggling to fill the void" after retiring from horse-racing in April.

The Moneyglass man was speaking at the star-studded premiere of the film Being AP at Dublin's Lighthouse Cinema.

The documentary chronicles McCoy's 20th consecutive season as Champion Jockey, which was also his last.

"Racing was something that I was lucky to be quite successful at, and I'm never going to be that successful ever again," he said.

"Is it easier than I thought it would be?

"No, but I've just got to get on with it and move forward."
