Pictured: There's an uncanny resemblance between Michael Collins and Paul O'Donovan
There's a very uncanny resemblance between Olympic rower Paul O'Donovan and Irish revolutionary leader Michael Collins.
Have you ever thought that Paul O'Donovan, the man who stole our hearts as one half of the Irish duo that won the country a silver medal in the 2016 Olympics, looked familiar?
You might recognise him from the history books, as he holds a striking resemblance to Michael Collins, who played a significant role in the fight for Irish independence in the early 20th century.
With nearly 100 years between the two men, they share quite a bit in common in looks, from their jawline to their furrowed brow.
Twitter user Ronan O'Flaherty spotted the similarities between the pair, saying: "More than just a passing resemblance between Olympic hero Paul O'Donovan and revolutionary leader Michael Collins."
We won't be able to look at Paul the same again!
