During a stoppage in play, De Vanna was handed a water bottle by teammate Elise Kellond-Knight.
This is where the Brazilian heat must have got to the Australia captain, for she proceeded to flip the bottle upside down in an attempt to drink it from the bottom.
Fortunately, Kellond-Knight was on hand to make sure De Vanna didn’t humiliate herself further by correcting the bottle cap’s direction.
The jokes on social media are endless, but here are just a few of our favourites.
De Vanna reacted
Unfortunately for De Vanna, the water bottle incident was just the beginning of a night to forget for her.
Australia were knocked out of the Olympic football tournament, losing to the host nation 7-6 on penalties after the contest finished 0-0.
De Vanna took to Twitter to express her disappointment, even making a light-hearted joke about water bottle-gate.
“Thanks for all the tweets about water bottle,” she wrote. “But it’s like my smile right now. Not the right way up.”
