Olympic hero Paul O'Donovan wins singles gold at Rowing World Championships

So it was brother Gary that was holding him back?!

Just kidding, of course.

Cork rower Paul O'Donovan is a world champion at the age of just 22.

O'Donovan, who claimed a silver medal for the Men's Doubles Sculls at Rio 2016, blitzed a world-class field in a dominant Singles display, in Rotterdam this morning.

He set out at a decent pace and was well clear of his nearest competitors by the end. A suddenly obsessed Irish nation reacted accordingly...

Extra reason for Skibbereen to rock long into the night as Paul is due back for a homecoming with brother Gary next Monday evening.

Some buachaill.
