Grand National winning jockey describes 'magical' race

Grand National winning jockey David Mullins has described the experience as "magical".

The 19-year-old came storming through on 33-1 Rule The World to win the chase in his first ride in the race.

"It hasn't sunk in at all, and there are no real words to describe it. But it is magical," he said.

Mullins admitted he didn't think he was in with a chance until the second to last fence, adding "there were big green things in front of me before to be thinking about anything else."
