Irish cyclist Sam Bennett delivers classic putdown to British cycling magazine
Irish rider Sam Bennett notched a big win in the opening stage of the Criterium International in Corsica yesterday, and inevitably the Irish success was leapt upon by our nearest neighbours.
British cycling magazine Cycle Sport tweeted out congrats to Bennett, insisting it was further evidence of in-form Brits, but Bennett hit back with a razor sharp response as Gaeilge.
Gabh mo leithsceil @cyclesportmag ach is eireannach mise. Go raibh maith agaibh go leir don tachaíocht agus do fhocail cineálta 😊

Translated, Bennett writes: "Excuse me @cyclesportmag, but I'm Irish. Thank you for all your support and your kind words."
