Watch: Ian Madigan Subjected To Bizarre Mankini Challenge As French Move Takes Dark Turn

Thousands of Leinster Rugby fans have marched upon the French Embassy on Fitzwilliam Lane in protest at Bordeaux-Bégles' humiliating torture of Ian Madigan.

A clip of the 27-year-old Ireland international being forced to don a Christmas mankini of some description, alongside Australia's Adam Ashley-Cooper, has surfaced on the Canal Rugby Club Twitter account, drawing a mixed reaction from Irish rugby fans of varying sexual persuasions.

Madigan, unlike Ashley-Cooper, goes balls-in on the mankini side of the challenge - perhaps even a tad too gratuitously.

He's not shown jumping into what amounts to a shark tank of presumably very cold water, which would lead us to believe it's a mere teaser clip of an upcoming Canal Rugby Club episode, or it was indeed very, very cold, and he refused to sign over the rights to the footage - or perhaps more pertinently, inchage - of him re-emerging from his dive. Look, it's December.

Anyway, we've put this off for long enough. Here is Madz in all his mankini glory:

There's really not much left to be said, apart from fair dues to Adam Ashley-Cooper.
