WATCH: The O'Donovans' interview following their race was once again hilarious

These two are some characters...

Paul and Gary O'Donovan are the new heroes of the Rio Olympics as they claimed a silver medal in a fantastic performance in the men’s lightweight double sculls final.

The reaction to their win was fantastic around the country as people heaped praise on the pair for sticking to their word and pulling like dogs.

Their interviews during the week were good but we think that their latest one is even sweeter because they've now got a silver medal to take home with them from Rio.

The pair of legends, who are now afraid to go home because Michael Conlan said he'd box the head off them if they didn't win gold.

We think he will hit them, but it'll be a very firm pat on the back for their tremendous achievement...
