Rory McIlroy is taking constant blows from Irish boxers, with Paddy Barnes the latest to troll the golfer who decided not to take part in the Rio Olympics.

Rory McIlroy may well be regretting his decision not to be part of Team Ireland for the 2016 Olympics.

Having been mercilessly trolled by Michael Conlan in a snap with golf star Rickie Fowler, Barnes took the p***-ripping to the next level.

Here is the cheeky boxer in a snap with none other than McIlroy's ex-fiancee and tennis player Caroline Wozniacki:

Barnes' grin says it all really.

The boxer, who carried the flag for Team Ireland in this morning's opening Ceremony, is good value for a follow on Twitter:

McIlroy decided to skip the Olympics over fears about the Zika virus, a decision which Barnes and Conlan are likely making him regret heavily.

More star-studded snaps from Ireland's Olympians are to be expected over the course of the competition.
