Wearing a v-neck top, bootcut jeans and oversized sunglasses, stylish Brian was dressed for the good weather.

And he made sure to stop for a fan photo outside a coffee shop on Drury Street. BOD is presumably checking out local haunts before he begins his role as a sports pundit on Newstalk's 'Off the Ball' in September.

He is fresh from an extended trip to London last month where he enjoyed the atmosphere at Glastonbury and Wimbledon.

After retiring from international rugby earlier this year, BOD and his wife of four years, actress Amy Huberman, jetted on a much-needed holiday, but they're sticking with statycations from now on their one-year-old daughter Sadie 'calls the shots'.

Amy previously explained to The Herald that choosing a holiday location can be tricky as it is crucial Sadie is catered for.

“We want somewhere that is not boiling hot and that has stuff Sadie can do,” Amy said. “You sort of stop and go, Oh, we have to think about that’,” she added laughing.

“Not that we would get much of a break to lie on sun loungers anyway and just say to her, You take care of yourself’," she joked.
