A legend from the sporting world seemed quite excited to be rubbing shoulders with a man who likes to promote himself as a legend of the showbiz world - with the meeting of Brian O’Driscoll and David Hasselhoff captured on Instagram.

Quoting the chorus line from Hasselhoff’s hit show Baywatch in his social media posting, BOD was beaming to meet the actor who has been something of a regular at rugby events in the UK in recent years, with his Welsh girlfriend Hayley Roberts evidently a big fan of the sport.


“The Hoff” was in attendance for the rugby World Cup in Cardiff last year and now he has shown up at the Hong Kong rugby sevens, where he got a chance to meet up with Irish sporting idol O’Driscoll.

We hope that Hasselhoff was aware that he was in the presence of sporting royalty, though we suspect he was not quite as excited about the meeting as former Ireland captain O’Driscoll.

I'll be there I'll be ready Never your fear Now don't you fear I'll be there, forever and always, I'm always here
