If you watched last night’s semi-finals, and more appropriately, the moments in the ready room beforehand, you know that Chad le Clos (RSA) and Michael Phelps had a bit of an interesting situation play out.
Le Clos shadow boxed, shook himself out and eye balled Phelps from the ready room, behind the blocks, and even after the semi-final was over.
But it was the facial expressions that Phelps made that has taken social media and the internet by storm over the past 24 hours.
