Michael Conlan landed an inch-perfect jab on Rory McIlroy this afternoon, with a little help from top golfer Ricky Fowler.

Conlan who, along with fellow boxer Paddy Barnes, has been hoovering up selfies with famous faces in the Olympic village, has used his latest one with the US golf star to have a dig at McIlroy for not heading to Rio.

The tweet is in a similar vein to one posted by Barnes last week.

McIlroy decided to skip the Olympics over fears about the Zika virus.

We wonder if he is regretting it now, just so he is no longer the target of jokes from the Irish boxers.
