Aer Lingus had a special surprise for fans travelling to London for today's big game

There has been an Irish invasion of London this weekend as supporters descend on Twickenham for one of the biggest Six Nations games in years.

Ireland take on England this afternoon with a Grand Slam at stake, and Aer Lingus, the official airline of the Irish rugby team, made sure that one set of supporters flying over were well kitted out to ensure Joe Schmidt's side see plenty of green in the stands.

Fans on one of their flights to London were given a free Ireland jersey to wear to the game, while the airline have also modified the outside of some of their planes to pay tribute to the heroes who will run out in green this afternoon.

You can watch the fans receive their nice surprise below:
