IT was a formal visit to the home of the British Prime Minister to celebrate the success of the Lions' summer tour Down Under.

But Brian O'Driscoll and wife Amy Huberman could not resist a little fun as they approached the door to 10 Downing Street.

Amy tweeted a picture of BOD (above) – dressed for the occasion in Lions blazer and tie – chuckling like a naughty schoolboy. "Nik naks at Dave's," wrote Amy on her Twitter account, in a joking reference to the game played by young children.

But they didn't run away and instead went inside to join coach Warren Gatland, who controversially dropped O'Driscoll for the final Test, and many of the Lions players inside.
