Pop sensations Jedward
are ecstatic after receiving an invite to carry the Olympic torch through Dublin this summer.
The twins are among a host of stars including rocker Bono, rugby ace Brian O’Driscoll
, golfer Rory McIlroy and athlete Sonia O’Sullivan who have been asked to be Olympic torchbearers.
And John and Edward (20) insist the invite is an even greater honour than meeting US President Barack Obama last year. “It’s bigger than Barack or as big as it anyway!” Edward said. “It’s such a huge honour although we’ll probably fight over whose hand will be holding the torch nearest the top.”
