Take a look at this video, where you'll see Irish boxing legend Barry McGuigan taking part in a donkey derby.

Tony McCoy's donkey derby, which took place yesterday to raise funds charity, is exactly what it sounds like: a race with a bunch of people riding donkeys.

And it actually looks like fierce craic altogether.

Take a look at the action below, right at the moment where McGuigan achieves (an absolutely legitimate) victory.

While this was one of the finest donkey races we've ever seen (definitely top five), it just can't touch the classic Castletown Donkey Derby of '94.

What a display.
