A French competitive walker has defecated mid-race at the Olympics without even breaking a step.
Yohann Diniz, the favourite to win the race, had the unfortunate incident at the 15k mark - just under a third of the way into the 50k race.
As if that wasn’t bad enough he also fell over. While covered in poo.
And now blood.
Heroically, Dinz finished eighth in the race - and faced more good news when he was bumped up to seventh when another race walker was disqualified.
French newspaper L’Equipe reports Diniz, 38, had stomach problems in the lead-up to the race but was undeterred and partook anyway.
His undeniable grit is earning the current world record holder a lot of fans.
We salute you Diniz. From a few feet away...
