    That's gold (or bronze as the case may be)!!!

    That one and the Aussie waterpolo coach are right up there. This one might shade him because he'd walked away with a medal and still spat it.

    Edit: transcript of the Water polo blow up:

    "The referee is an arsehole as far as I'm concerned. How's that a kick-out [exclusion] at the end of the game? We're up by a goal, we don't want to give away an exclusion, we foul the girl, we're trying to cut back. The Hungarian player has hold of us and we get excluded. That's just total bull**** as far as I'm concerned. I'd like to kill the bastard.

    "It feels like we've been robbed, … That was the most important game in our round. We win that game and we're looking good and they're struggling. Let the players decide the game not the stupid bloody referees.

    "The players tried their hearts out for four quarters, and the referee goes and cruels it for them," McFadden said. "It's just not fair."

    Was a bit like losing a cricket match because the scorers had counted the runs wrong tbf.

    Could you explain a bit? Ive seen the footage of the incident but I have no idea of what made him so angry to do that.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    Well, in wrestling you have this 30 second period where one wrestler gets the chance to start with a back hold. If he can't score points during this period, the opponent takes the points. What happened was that the Italian won the first end (best of three), and it was 1-1 in the second end before the Italian had his chance at a hold. Midway through, the mat referee wanted to award points to the Italian, but was overruled by the other two officials and it didn't . Thus, no points were scored. Then, at the end of the 30 seconds, no points being scored, that should have given Abrahamian one point. He thought he just needed to hold on to win the end, thus didn't need to take aggressive action. Then the referees come out and award the win to the Italian, despite no points being on the scoreboard for him - basically, they conveniently forgot to give the point to Abrahamian.

    He retired, so I don't think he'll be too worried.
