Rugby legend Ronan O'Gara's long goodbye will finally draw to a close this week at a star-studded black-tie dinner in London.

The former Irish player is set to be the toast of 870 guests at his second and final testimonial dinner in the Hilton hotel in Park Lane, London, on Thursday night.

O'Gara will be joined by his pregnant wife Jessica on the night and all tickets for the event are sold out, with some guests paying up to €6,000 for a table of 10.

The event will be hosted by 'X Factor' presenter Dermot O'Leary and proceeds will be contributed to the Ireland Fund of Great Britain, which helps provide care for elderly Irish people in the UK.

Jockeys Ruby Walsh and AP McCoy are also expected to be in attendance.
