Winning on the Olympic stage is perhaps one of the finest things an athlete can achieve. The adulation of securing victory in the most prestigious of settings can often lead to tears, ecstatic scenes of hugging or athletes simply collapsing to the floor in a tired, emotional heap.

Those three descritpions are usually the norm, but at Rio 2016, the Kenyan team has decided to banish away these rather cliche celebrations and instead, show the watching world something a little different.

In the wake of Peter Warui's victory in the lightweight boxing over China's Lyu Bin by a split-decision, the African athlete and his supporting cast decided to produce some light-hearted dance moves to accompany an impressive accomplishment.

The moves really are quite sensational, particularly as Warui himself appears to be dictating the 'dad-dancing' moves being produced by his coaching staff as he progressed to the quarter finals.

A few seconds of the clip shows a member of the Chinese team looking rather disapprovingly at what was happening both in and on the side of the ring.

The Kenyans have enjoyed a lot of success in the boxing so far in Brazil, with Warui's victory the latest impressive feat achieved by the African fighters.

Underdog Rayton Okwiri defeated Russian Andrei Zamkovoi in the welterweight division on Sunday night in one of the biggest shocks so far at these games.

Will we see some more dance moves if the duo progress further? Let's hope so, no one likes a boring celebration anyway.
