Olympic boxer Paddy Barnes shows off a rather fetching bikini in Portugal

The road to Rio 2016 requires a sun break every now and then.

IRELAND’S DOUBLE OLYMPIC Bronze Medallist Paddy Barnes has been doing his best to stay out of the scorching Portuguese sun.

The Belfast boxer, who won bronze medals at Beijing 2008 and London 2012, is not only catching some shade under poolside sun umbrellas but sporting a fetching cherry print bikini top:

The Olympian snazzy summer wear was tweeted by former Derry footballer Joe Brolly, who now raises eyebrows himself as a forthright RTÉ pundit.
