Conlan relishes Olympic Games 'pressure cooker'

Belfast bantamweight Michael Conlan tells BBC Sport NI's Stephen Watson that he thrives on the pressure of being considered a medal prospect at the Rio Olympic Games.

Conlan, who is the last remaining Irish male boxer at the Games, earned a unanimous win over Armenia's Aram Avagyan in his last-16 bout at the Games.

"That was one of my worst performances in recent times but it was my first fight of the tournament and I will get better," said Conlan.
