An Irish business has landed the big time after his invention was picked up by Manchester City football club.

Backballers have taken over social media over the past few months after Noel Marshall posted a video of his dual back foam roller online.

Since it was launched athletes such as Johnny Sexton and Keith Earls have signed up to use it.

Over the Christmas, Manchester City became the first Premier League club to purchase the 'Backballer'. The club apparently came across the new piece of equipment thanks to the huge social media campaign that the owners put in place.

Speaking earlier, Noel said "over the Christmas the order came in and we had to check if it defiantly came from the club. I called them up and spoke to the head of PA for the medical centre and it went from there".

There is no word yet as to who at the club will be using this invention, but let it be known if City romp home and win the Premiere League this year, there was some Irish contribution to the success.
