BT Sport have announced that former Irish rugby star Brian O'Driscoll has joined the broadcaster's presenting team.

"I'm excited to be embarking on one of the next steps in my career with BT Sport, it's a big change for me, but I'm looking forward to the challenge and being involved at the inception of the brand new European tournament at a brand new channel like BT Sport," said O'Driscoll.

"I'm joining BT Sport because I've been impressed by their new and fresh approach to rugby coverage and I'm looking forward to being a part of their team."

O'Driscoll, who will also feature on the weekly rugby show Rugby Tonight, has been named as a BT Sport ambassador.
