When Irishman Liam Keane found what looks like Ireland's biggest ever pothole, he couldn't resist pulling on his togs and taking a dip.

Liam, 21, from Kanturk, County Cork, found himself up to his armpits in water.

But he never dreamed that his post-Christmas dip would be an international hit.

No sooner was the video up than thousands of people across the world wanted to see it.

Liam, 21, found the huge hole in the road near his home in Cork after a friend put a traffic cone into it.
