BOXER PADDY BARNES has been having a good time at the Olympics so far – leading the Irish team in the Parade of Nations, slagging former teammates… You know yourself.

From Rio, Barnes tweeted a picture of himself and Rory McIlroy’s former fiancée, tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, tagging the golfer.

Hey Caroline Wozniacki I think we make a great couple, what ya think Rory McIlroy?


McIlroy pulled out of the Olympics earlier in the summer, citing fears about the Zika virus.

Barnes wasn’t too impressed with his decision – back in July, he said McIlroy’s PR team mismanaged his withdrawal:

It’s scripted so I’d probably blame his PR team for talking sh*te every few weeks. He’s had three different excuses already.

And now this? Don’t hold back, Paddy.
