Only in Australia

The Telegraph

An Olympic Gold Medallist loses a bet with Sacha Baron Cohen and has to wear a mankini to the London opening ceremony. Instead of being a bunch of old fogeys about this the AOC point out the obvious.

An Australian Olympic Committee spokesman recommended Mark keep the mankini in the closet.

“Age is the problem here. Russell is no spring chicken, his days of being a model are long gone, and we don’t think it would be a good look for the team to have Russell in a mankini,” the spokesman said.

“Besides, this will be his sixth Olympics and he is a chance to be named as flag bearer. Imagine the flag bearer out in front of our team in a mankini. And a big, butch shooter at that.

“As we all know the London weather is fickle and we would not want him to catch cold.”
