Former Love Island winner Greg O'Shea couldn't contain his delight as he landed in Tokyo to compete in his first Olympics.

The 26 year old Irish heartthrob, who won the dating series in 2019 with his ex-girlfriend Amber Gill, has been proudly documenting his epic journey on his Instagram page.

And on Sunday, the professional rugby player beamed as he stood outside the terminal at Dublin Airport with his luggage ahead of his flight to Japan.

"The Olympic journey has started! Thanks so much to everyone who messaged me and to all the family, friends and partners that waved us off at the airport. Next stop Tokyo!" he wrote in the caption.

Limerick native Greg is competing at the Olympics with his Ireland rugby 7s team after winning a final qualifying tournament over France in Monaco.

And since landing, Greg has proudly been making the most of his time in Tokyo before the games officially commence.

The former reality star shared a clip of the hundreds of menu options served at the athletes' village, ranging from pizzas and pasta to noodles and halal food.

Following his fame on Love Island, Greg took a step back from the spotlight and has since revealed he was subjected to vile online trolling, which affected his confidence.

At the time, it was reported that Greg had dumped beauty therapist Amber via text message five weeks after their win. However, he previously cleared up that it was because they "really didn't know each other that well."

And in an interview back in March, Greg admitted that despite receiving positive messages, he couldn't help but focus on the negative ones.

"I'll be in the depths of comments on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter, reading horrible stuff about myself," he told The Sun.

"I noticed after a while I was feeling really down on myself and I started getting less confident and things like that," he expressed.

"That's probably what is so dangerous about social media nowadays. I feel so sorry for young teenagers that are coming up, and social media is their life, everything's on it," Greg added.
