Taylor's breakfast of champions

OLYMPIC champion Katie Taylor has made no secret of the fact that she is a home bird and it seems she even pines for Irish grub when she is away doing Ireland proud in the boxing ring.

The Bray native says the one thing she cannot travel without is Crunchy Nut Corn Flakes. So when she is abroad, it is a warm bowl of the crispy stuff in the morning that puts a pep in her step.

The 27-year-old admits that she doesn't like the breakfasts that she gets abroad. "I always bring my cereal with me," explained Katie. "I don't like continental breakfasts, so it keeps me in good form."
