Rory McIlroy: I may not play in Rio Olympics


World number one golfer Rory McIlroy has revealed that he may not play in the next Olympics.

The 23-year-old from Holywood would be eligible for selection by either Great Britain or Ireland at the 2016 Games in Rio.

However, in a BBC documentary, he said he may opt out of the games because he does not want to offend anyone.

The world number one told the BBC's Stephen Watson he was considering his options.
