Watch: Nonito Donaire pulls a pint of Guinness on farewell drink at Crown Bar

By Gareth Hanna

Dear Nonito Donaire, Belfast loves you.

The Filipino Flash has earned a legion of Northern Irish supporters during the course of his defeat to Carl Frampton on Saturday evening - and it's not just because he failed to beat the local hero.

Donaire, widely known as one of the nicest guys in boxing, proved the accuracy of his reputation throughout his stay in the city, from kind words in the pre-match press conference to inviting kids into the public work-out ring and from tuneful sing-alongs to pulling pints in the crown.

That's how he capped off his stay in Belfast, after inviting the whole city down to join him at the famous pub.

Here's his attempt at pulling a pint of the black stuff - maybe a wee bit more angle on that glass, Nonito?

Unsurprisingly, Donaire had plenty of time for local supporters - did you get a snap with the Filipino Flash? Tweet it to @BelTel_Sport and we'll include it in our roll of Donaire-appreciation:
