Rory McIlroy creates Twitter storm with decision to pull out of Olympics

RORY McILROY’s decision to pull out of the Olympic Games in Rio has not gone down well with Twitter’s Irish sports fans.

Citing the threat of the Zika virus as a risk he is “unwilling to take” with his family in mind, McIlroy’s withdrawal has been met with scepticism, anger and disbelief.

With the event beginning as soon as August 5, the timing of McIlroy’s decision has not gone well, although it does pave the way for another Irish golfer to go to Rio.

Whoever that may be, they won’t offer the same medal hopes that world number four McIlroy would have filled Irish fans with, and the Co. Down man is now feeling the wrath of the Twittersphere.
