The 2016 Olympics in Rio have already produced a number of heartwarming moments but the latest, from China's Fu Yuanhui, is just lovely.
The 20-year-old took part in the Women's 100m backstroke on Tuesday and, following the end of the race, presumed she'd finished fourth.
The electronic scoreboard showed her name outside of the medal positions, but she still cut a jovial figure in her post-race interview.

About a minute into the conversation with a Chinese reporter, she is quoted as saying by the Mirror: "Even though I did not win a medal."
A little taken aback by Fu's comment, the interviewer interrupts the Olympian by saying: "But you got a medal. You are third."
And the reporter was, indeed, correct.
Fu completed the 100m backstroke final in a time of 58.76s - the exact same time as third-placed Kylie Masse.
This meant both swimmers won a bronze medal.

"I did not know!" she replied, looking absolutely stunned then thrilled.
"Well, then, I think that's not bad at all!"
