A gold-medal winning German athlete was barred entry to the Olympic Village after he fell asleep on a train and was robbed during a boozy night of celebration.
Discus thrower Robert Harting was so elated at taking the gold medal with a throw of 68.27m, he ripped off his shirt in a Hulk-like display before going on to clumsily run the 100m hurdles, the Daily Mail reports.

The strong man then continued his celebration by racing over to the Olympic cauldron, where he tried to rip out a flaming torch.
But the fun was only getting started for the excited athlete, who continued partying aboard a cruise ship docked in London to house the German team.
Harting reportedly downed a number of alcoholic beverages before having a nap on the tube and getting robbed.
"I just got robbed while I did some work to please some athletic fans! I lost my accredition (sic) for Olympic village — no entrance ;(," he tweeted.
Fronting a press conference the following afternoon the discus thrower said contrary to media reports he was not robbed as he slept on the train.
"Just to make it clear it didn't happen on the train as was reported in error," he said.
The man who has been dubbed the Lord of the Ring, because of the circle from which the discus is thrown, said he will probably retire from hurdles.
"It was not very nice for me personally but for the spectators it was certainly super exciting," Harting said.
"And for those who are very close to me, for them it was probably agony as well."
