BBC Sport - Ryder Cup 2016: Paul O'Connell to deliver speech to Europe team

O'Connell to make speech to Europe team

Former Ireland rugby captain Paul O'Connell prepares to deliver a motivational talk to Europe's Ryder Cup team before the match against the United States.

O'Connell, who led Ireland to Six Nations Championship success in 2014 and 2015, was invited to Hazeltine by European team captain Darren Clarke.

"We're just going to have a chat. I'm a bit nervous about it because it is something you want to do right," said O'Connell, who quit international rugby after injuring a hamstring during the 2015 World Cup.
