Proof that Brian O’Driscoll’s grand finale in Paris this weekend is global news was given further credence when Barack Obama name-checked the record breaker today.

The American president mentioned the Irish rugby legend in his St. Patrick’s Day speech reception.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny spent the day with the American president as part of his St. Patrick’s Day trip and may have been surprised that Obama was up to speed with the landmark day in Irish rugby.

"I understand tomorrow is the last match of the legendary Brian O' Driscoll," he said.

O’Driscoll will hope to bow out in style tomorrow in Irish colours by claiming victory over the French which would secure the Six Nations title.

At least he knows he has the support of the American president for the grand-stand finish.
