Belfast boxer Michael Conlan put in his place by Katie Taylor
Ireland's first ever amateur boxing world champion Michael Conlan was put in his place in devastating fashion by fellow Olympic hero Katie Taylor but there were unexpected benefits.
Conlan decided to show off his medal haul on Twitter with the message, 'Medal anyone?'. Olympic gold medallist Taylor was on hand to decline the offer in style.

The priceless exchange between two of our major medal hopefuls for Rio spread across social media but had an unexpected upside for Conlan.
