‘Trolling’ someone behind the keyboard, from the comfort of your own home, has become all too common these days. No one is spared, whether you’re a prince, a pauper, or a contestant on dancing with the stars, you don’t have to be a tough guy, to be a keyboard warrior.
Most sportspeople laugh it off, but when is enough, enough. Well, Irish jockey Ruby Walsh has had enough, and he’s let his anger out in a simply brilliant advertisement for Irish bookmaker, Paddy Power.
As usual, the Irish have delivered in spades when it comes to comedy.

The ad was made as a collaboration between Walsh and the betting company for the upcoming Cheltenham Festival, which begins on Tuesday.
The jockey may have been filmed having a good ‘craic’ for the advertisement but he’s all business at the moment, going through his final schooling sessions and track work.
The 37-year-old has ridden more winners (52) than anyone at the Festival that begins on Tuesday, featuring five group ones, over four massive days.
The list of groups one is the Cheltenham Gold Cup, Champion Hurdle, Queen Mother Champion Chase and World Hurdle, held over four days.
The best chase for Walsh to add to his incredible tally of 52 winners at the prestigious festival comes in Wednesday’s Queen Mother Champion Chase, when he’s on the favourite Douvan (1/4 with Paddy Power or $1.25).
Sportsbet, which is part owned by Paddy Power, haven’t released a market for Cheltenham as yet, but no doubt they will over the coming days.
