There might be more than meets the eye when it comes to fair-weather supporters cheering on the boys in green.

Tensions are running high as the Republic of Ireland squad prepares for a clash against Italy tonight...and it's not just on the pitch.

A new survey shows that a whopping 91% of people think they'll see a boost in the bedroom if there's a victory, while 71% agree there's a drop in libido after a loss; while 12% of men avoided any kind of sexual activity after defeat.

The poll, facilitated by Lloyds Pharmacy Online Doctor, was conducted after Saturday's 3-0 loss against Belgium.

Euro 2016 coverage has dominated most of our tv screens, but some are going the extra mile as one in four fans are putting more energy into watching the footie than spending time with their partner.

And some really dedicated fans said they would be willing to give up sex or alcohol for the rest of the championship if it meant seeing Ireland take home the trophy on July 10.

Lloyd's also highlighted the possibility of erectile dysfunction due to excessive alcohol consumption.
