Olympic champion Katie Taylor goes undercover to surprise Patrick Fu, who is this year’s Living for Sports Student of the Year for the Republic of Ireland
One lucky student got the surprise of his life in Dublin on Wednesday when he was surprised by boxing world champion and Olympic gold medallist Katie Taylor.
Patrick Fu was the recipient of the Sky Sports Living for Sport Student of the Year award for the Republic of Ireland and Taylor took time out of her build-up to Rio 2016 to personally present him with his prize.
Fu thought he was there to take part in a Living for Sport boxing initiative with Sky Sports boxing analyst Johnny Nelson – until Taylor sprang out of the crowd to present him with his award.

Afterwards, Taylor said: “We always had a motto in our house that every child was born for greatness and Patrick is the same – he is born for greatness.
“This Living for Sport initiative is just getting that greatness out of him really. It is amazing what you can do through sport.”
