Mendes himself was quick to heap the praise on the travelling Irish fans when he said: "What's awesome is this, these Irish guys are crazy. I wish we had support like that for everyone here, it's unbelievable the support you show for your athletes and I got to come in here and be apart of it.

"This is something that I'm never going to forget in my life."
