Double act: Roy teams up with two Hectors

Roy Keane was enjoying the sunshine with not one but two Hectors yesterday as he launched the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind SHADES 2011 campaign.

The former football player and manager made a rare public appearance to support the charity with radio presenter Hector O hEochagain and guide dog puppy Hector.

The 2fm presenter is helping to train the seven month old alsation-golden retriever cross breed puppy.

He was clearly impressed with meeting the former international footballer. On Twitter, O hEochagain said: "Have to say, and not just because I'm Man Utd all my life, but Roy Keane is a gentleman."

The campaign, supported by Paddy Power, focuses on raising funds for the training of guide and assistance dogs for people living with sight loss or autism.
