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