CJ Stander, a son of Limerick.

He might be an adopted son but he's loved like their own nonetheless.

The Munster, Ireland and now Lions star was awarded on Wednesday as an Honorary International Ambassador for Limerick.

Since joining the province in 2012, Stander has thrown himself into the Munster way of life and, now, if you cut him open, he'd bleed red...

The honour bestowed upon him means that he is being recognised for his outstanding commitment, support and encouragement to the people of Limerick and to the promotion of Limerick at home and abroad.

The player mic audio from the Pro 12 win last weekend really shows the passion the man has for the cause.

And his comments upon being announced as an ambassador for Limerick sum him right up.

"It’s a massive honour to receive this," Stander said.

"When I arrived here the biggest thing that I felt was that Limerick was a city where people look after their own.  They pulled me in from the beginning and looked after me and my family and just made us part of the city.  It was unreal and it was great to get that welcome.

"Four and a half years in and people are still welcoming.  It is a great town for me hopefully one day to raise a family.  Limerick has done a lot for me, and my promoting it is everything they deserve."
