Ian Madigan bumped into the world's fastest man after Ireland's game yesterday.

These are the perks of the job. Ian Madigan deputised for Johnny Sexton during Ireland's loss to England at Twickenham yesterday and while the out-half was no doubt disappointed with the defeat, this picture with a very special guest probably boosted his spirits.

We don't have any other details besides knowing that Madigan posed for a quick snap with 100m world record-holder Usain Bolt, but let's hope that the skillful back gave the project-player system in Ireland the hard sell.

Alternatively, the Irish back three isn't as fast as it has been in previous years but maybe getting Bolt on as a speed consultant could remedy that.
