With the Olympics well under way, the next two weeks will see social media permanently alight with news, results and speculation about the performances of sportspeople and bets on which country will take home the most gold medals.

And you know where this is going...

Some lost their minds...

People were disappointed that Hannah Miley is actually a Great Britain swimmer

On Saturday, Miley competed in the final of the Women's 400m Individual Medley and lost out on a bronze medal.
