Some Muppet Gave Team GB Matching Luggage And They Tweeted The Whole Mess

You know that knackered feeling you get after a two week holiday, where all you want to do is get back to your own house, drink a beer on the sofa and order a takeaway? Then you wait two hours waiting for your luggage on the belt at the airport and have to jostle with a load of middle-aged fat men who won't move, even when your bag is approaching. Well, I can only imagine how members of Team GB felt after they arrived at Heathrow following the Rio Olympics.

Sadly for them, any plans to get home early went to pot because when they went to claim their bags they were all the same.

Luckily, after their second place overall standings at Rio 2016, Team GB's athletes must have still been in decent spirits and were able to laugh it off through some hilarious Tweets and Snapchats.

Here's what Team GB windsurfer Nick Dempsey made of it...


Alex Gregory, a two-time Olympic world rowing champion, also laughed it off...

Olympian Matt Langridge, also a rower, said...


And gymnast Becky Downie gave us a 360 view of the disaster...

Finally, Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark, 2012 world champions and Olympic silver medallists in sailing, best summed it up...


Let's hope they sort it out at Tokyo 2020 lads.
