BOXING legend Ricky Hatton has broken the internet with his costume at a Spanish festival.

The festival – a favourite among Brits – regularly throws up some of the best fancy-dress outfits around and Hatton has joined the list.

In footage posted to his Twitter, the 39-year-old is seen dressed up as an Irishman on top of a leprechaun.

He dances for the camera by lifting up his fake legs and singing to the camera.

The man filming bursts out into laughter and Hatton’s 530,000 fans were also in stitches.

“Absolutely brilliant this. What a legend! Love the Hitman.”

Another: “Not a monkey given. Different class.”

It comes as the former world champion said he would come out of retirement to fight Rio Ferdinand after the Manchester United announced he was training to become a boxer.
