Paul O'Connell has been unveiled as a Toulon player at a press conference in Stade Mayol.

O'Connell agreed to a move to the European champions back in June, and was finally presented to the French media on Wednesday.

The former Ireland captain met his new team-mates and visited the club's stadium and training facilities.

The 36-year-old is recovering from the hamstring tear he suffered in Ireland's World Cup victory over France in October, but is targeting a return to action before the end of this season.

The lucrative two-year, €1m-a-season deal with the French giants runs until the summer of 2017. 

O'Connell spoke last month about his excitement at the move and his hunger to maintain the phenomenal standards he's set throughout his career.

“I wish I was going over injury free on the back of a good World Cup," he said. "It’s always going to be a challenge at 36 to make an impression. Now it’s going to be even more difficult. The challenge for me now is to go over and be as good as I can."

Toulon are currently third in the Top 14, behind Toulouse only on points difference and trailing leaders Clermont Auvergne by a point.

They're also third in their Champions Cup Pool 5, ahead of Leinster after defeating the province 24-9 in France last weekend.
