Nobody likes losing, and it's always something that's hard to take, no matter how hard we've worked or how dubious the circumstances are.
However, most people can keep a lid on their emotions, take the knock on the chin and move on in relative peace.
But most people aren't gigantic Greek body builders that get slap happy when things don't go their way.
Bodybuilder Giannis Magos took part in the International Federation of Bodybuilders Diamond Cup recently, and while he won the 100kg contest, he fell agonisingly short of the overall prize.
And upon being delivered the news, he handed an almighty beat down to IFBB judge Armando Marquez, knocking him to the ground in the process.
As the video below shows, he flipped out and directed his considerable anger at anybody and everybody that dared cross his path.
The slap, and it was just a slap, was so powerful that it sent the tiny judge flying across the floor. Marquez quickly got back to his feet, but Magos stalked the stage and the ground in front of it uninterrupted.
The weirdest thing about the whole scene came in a report from Australian news outlet Yahoo7 News, who claimed that amid the chaos, Magos was walking around exposing his penis.
It's hard to be taken seriously (no pun intended) when having a tantrum with your chap hanging out, but fair play to the big man, he managed to get it dead on.
The video underneath shows an extended version of events, and Magos will now surely face some sort of sanctions for his bad behaviour.
