Last night saw the beginning of the 2016 Olympics in Rio and, sure enough, it was all anybody could talk about online.
Well, for those who were still up at 1AM. Insomniacs, basically.
The Rio Olympics have been marred by controversy and Brazil's worsening political and financial situation was one of the key points, but there were also a few other things that caught people's eye.
Take a look.

Antonio Banderas jumps out of a helicopter with a parachute and lands in the mouth of a dragon that's made out of human skin.

In fairness, she had the home advantage.
All the technology Polo put into Michael Phelps' light-up jacket and all anyone will remember from tonight is a greased-up shirtless Tongan.

Look, if we all looked like that guy, we'd be shirtless and greased up at every available opportunity. Don't sit there and lie.

THE KING IN THE NORTH THE KING IN THE NORTH THE KING IN THE NORTH
I didn't just rewind and watch Tonga again #OpeningCeremony

Expect that guy who loves himself to turn as Tonga for Hallowe'en. For the craic.
