WATCH: Olympic hero Michael Conlan's 360-degree sparring video is supreme

"Trust your instincts. Visualise your success. Believe in yourself."

Stepping into the ring with Michael Conlan is a daunting task. The bantamweight world champion has been winning titles since he was 11 and trading blows since his age was in single digits.


This August, he travels to Rio with one thing on his mind - Olympic Gold.

Conlan has taken some time away from his rigorous training regime to collaborate with Team Ireland's official sponsor Electric Ireland to create a fantastic, unique 360-degree video.

The video creates the sensation of being in the ring, at close quarters, with Conlan. It even allows viewers to experience what it’s like to be on the wrong end of a knockout punch from the 2015 World Champion and 2012 Olympic medallist.

There is a great moment near the conclusion of the video, where the viewer gets to experience a rousing ring-walk. The ring in the distance, crowd baying, tricolours waving. As close to the real deal as you'll get.
