At this stage, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the Irish boxers' sole reason for travelling to Rio was to digitally torment Rory McIlroy, and not to win further Olympic medals.

Yesterday Michael Conlan called on American golfer Rickie Fowler to mock McIlroy for deciding not to compete at the games and, today, Paddy Barnes went one further.

Caroline Wozniacki is in Rio to represent Demark in tennis and must have bumped into Barnes in the Olympic Village, which he obviously thought provided the opportunity to get one over on the famous golfer.

Apparently, the Belfast boxer reckons he and Wozniacki would make a perfect match. Barnes is having a memorable couple of days, having just last night carried the Irish flag into the Maracana during the Opening Cermeony.
