Gerry Adams has a weird hobby

Gerry Adams has revealed he likes to trampoline naked in his garden - with his dog.

After being questioned about a tweet which mentioned "trampolining from dawn" by Newstalk, the Sinn Fein president told presenter Sean Moncrieff: "I do it naked".

He added the house was "ring-fenced" so passing paparazzi would not catch him in the act, and that he knew some tricks but did not want to reveal them publicly.

I don't do it with any great expertise, just the joy of it - the dog does it with me. It saves me taking him for a walk. We just go out and bounce for a while.... We trampoline when we get together, to make up for lost time.

What a time to be alive.
