Rowing: Ireland's O'Donovan brothers own the interview podium

Ireland's O'Donovan brothers have rowing silver, and interviewing gold.

As if winning a historic first Olympic rowing medal for Ireland wasn't enough already, brothers Paul and Gary O'Donovan have won our hearts with an increasingly endearing set of interviews with Irish broadcaster RTE.

In the first video, the brothers share their fears of returning home to Skibbereen, despite their history-making silver medal: Irish boxer Mick Conlan "said he'd box our heads off if we don't win the gold."

 
In the second video, the brothers are interviewed the day after their race; the inteview covers, pizza, "podium pants," urine testing, and just about everything in between.
 
 
The O'Donovans and their interviews have created a huge buzz on social media.
