Watch: John Cena Took A Swing At Irish Golfers In His ESPY Monologue

Watch: John Cena Took A Swing At Irish Golfers In His ESPY Monologue
By John Balfe Updated

John Cena delivered a distinct 'FU' to Irish Sport in his opening monologue at last night's ESPY's in Los Angeles, where he mocked the trio of Irish golfers who have withdrawn from the Olympics.

Golf's inclusion in this year's Olympics for the first time in more than a century has proven to be hugely controversial. Some of the sport's biggest names, including Rory McIlroy, Grame McDowell and Shane Lowry, have withdrawn from the games citing the outbreak of the Zika virus as the reason, though many outsiders suggest that the virus is little more than a convenient excuse for golfers who would rather focus on majors than winning a gold medal.

This clearly hasn't escaped the watchful gaze of John Cena who took a pretty big swing at the Irish golfers last night.

Irish golfers Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell and Shane Lowry pulled out of the Olympics because of the Zika virus, which is surprising because the Irish aren’t really known for pulling out.

We're sure that Rory will see the funny side of this, especially when you consider that he doesn't seem to mind one bit that he won't be in Rio.
