Irish rugby star Brian O'Driscoll has found himself well and truly in the doghouse with his wife Amy Huberman after being snapped enjoying life in retirement by crowd-surfing at a Hong Kong party while away on "business".

The former Ireland and British and Irish Lions captain was working as an ambassador for HSBC as part of their work with the Hong Kong Sevens, but the 36-year-old Dubliner clearly found a way to relax at a party for fans attending the World Sevens event.

However, one camera-happy fan managed to snap the perfect picture of O’Driscoll enjoying himself a little bit too much as he was spotted crowd-surfing while wearing full rave attire – BOD even had the florescent sunglasses to boot.

O’Driscoll was soon caught out though, after his wife posted the picture on her Twitter account along with a second message demanding for a “giant Toblerone” upon his return from his testing work commitments.

Huberman wrote: “You know when your husband is away in Hong Kong on a very important business trip...

“I better get a giant Toblerone from the duty free”

True to form, the record-breaking former Irish centre delivered the goods as he was pictured holding a Toblerone along with the caption “He’s home”, although the sheepish look on his face suggests he’s not quite in the clear just yet.

His attempt to escape the doghouse received a surprise boost though, after a second Toblerone package arrived at his house, with a message claiming "You left this behind Brian!"
