The joyous commentary of TV3's Dave McIntyre, RTE Radio's Michael Corcoran and the BBC's Eddie Butler for Jonathan Sexton's miracle drop goal has gone viral since Saturday's game.

Sexton landed a monster 42-metre drop-goal to spark wild Irish celebrations in Paris. It was hardly a vintage performance but a classic last-gasp victory will boost Ireland's confidence no end as Joe Schmidt's men go in search of a third title in five years.

For Les Bleus, when Teddy Thomas blazed over the whitewash at the Stade de France, Six Nations supporters appeared to have been granted one of their wishes - that a resurgent France would wake from their slumber under the guidance of new coach Jacques Brunel and be a force once more. And while Sexton intervened to deny them a morale-boosting win, there was enough on show in Paris to raise Gallic spirits.

The commentary from France 2 captured the French heartbreak with roars of 'c'est terrible, terrible' as Sexton's kick cleared the crossbar.
