The Irish rugby legend made his debut on BT's weekly rugby programme 'Rugby Tonight' and told presenter Craig Doyle that he is enjoying his new-found sense of freedom.

"The inner fat person hasn't burst out," he joked.

"It will be strange for the first few months but I haven't missed pre-season training. I'm sure it will be a different story when the European games come around."

O'Driscoll reflected on a stellar career and admitted that while he had regrets, that is something that goes with the territory of being a sports person.

"It's difficult to feel hard done by after 15 years."
