Even away from the rugby pitch, Ireland captain Paul O'Connell has the steely stare down to a fine art.

The Limerick native is one of the most popular sports stars this country has ever produced and when the opportunity to get a selfie with the Munster lock presents itself, many members of the public will take it, even if the man himself isn't aware of it.

Today FM presenter Louise Duffy's tweeted a Snapchat she received from a friend on the train and O'Connell's timing was as good as anything he produces at the lineout, peering over his Limerick Leader paper just in time to see the picture being taken.

"Look who's behind me," read the caption on the Snapchat as O'Connell oozed intensity from behind the commuter.
