Ireland's history-making rowing pair have returned to their Olympic Village base. And what a greeting they received.
Fresh from their gold medal triumph in the lightweight men's double sculls, Paul O'Donovan and Fintan McCarthy received a rapturous welcome from their fellow Irish Olympians and coaches.
And South African sportswriter Gary Lemke captured the magic moment.
The pair were even coaxed back out for an encore.
No doubt the jubilant scenes are the first of many emotional welcomes the Cork pair will receive in the coming days.
