​Conor McGregor has been paid a fitting tribute by the world's most expensive footballer, after Paul Pogba served up a version of his strut in an Instagram post that has already gone viral.

McGregor's stunning win against Eddie Alvarez in New York on Saturday has cemented his status as one of the world's premier sportsmen and now Pogba has helped to add to his legend.

Manchester United's £89m superstar midfielder is one of the most prominent sports stars on social media, with his big Facebook, Instagram and Twitter following adding hugely to his commercial value.

His vast global popularity was one of the reasons why United handed over a world record fee to sign him from Juventus last summer and it seems he is a huge fans of Dublin's UFC king.

Pogba clearly enjoyed his strut as he served it up with a cheeky smile, with hundreds of thousands of clicks already recorded on the video. 
Ireland's most popular sportsman is at the peak of his powers and tributes like this can only add to his legend.

You can only chuckle at this social media hit from Pogba:
