An Australian badminton player indulged in an over the top “cheat meal” after a loss in Rio.

Sawan Serasinghe, 22, wrote on Facebook that he spent months “eating clean” ahead of the Olympics. After suffering a loss at the Olympics, it was time for him to let loose.

“Now it's time to eat some junk food after months of eating clean!” he posted on Saturday, showing off his abs in a photo. 

Anyone else wondering if he finished his entire meal?

The post got 489 reactions on Facebook.

Some Facebook commenters congratulated Serasinghe on his week competing in Rio.

“Amazing achievement, congratulations. Enjoy the maccas,” Alice Winwood-Smith said.

Other Facebook users poked fun at his “cheat meal.”

“You will probably be competing in the diarrhea olympics right after you eat all that,” Cristoforo Giovanni said.

Serasinghe replied to Giovanni, “Sorry to disappoint. Didn't happen,” with a friendly smiling emoji.
