Northern Ireland's Carl Frampton woke up this morning with the knowledge that he has become the IBF super-bantamweight boxing world champion and celebrated with the customary selfie.

Looking a little worse for wear, the Jackal posted this picture on twitter with the message: "Woke up with a sore head this morning, must have been in a fight last night. Thank you all for your amazing support."

The Belfast brawler was in ferocious form last night as he clinically dismantled Kiko Martinez to take the title.

Northern Ireland came to a standstill for the fight which was viewed by 16,000 fans in the Titanic quarter.
