Rio 2016 is well under way, and while we are all completely stoked for Team GB's growing medal count (hooray), half of our TV watching time is being spent secretly following the hilarious Olympics tweets and social media sofa commentary going on across the Internet.
From pools turning green to Tom Daley's briefs, everyone it seems has an Olympic opinion that needs to be shared with the world.

And while some of the funniest tweets from Rio 2016 have come from the Olympic athletes themselves (Emily Sonnet's #crackalack tweet, lol) — and how could we not mention #PhelpsFace — much of the online hilarity has come from the likes of you and I, the Olympic Games couch judges who like to engage in a little bit of social media punditry along the way. Preferably over snacks. We're ALL armchair experts, apparently.
From diving to gymnastics, here are a few nuggets of Olympic social media gold to have you chuckling all the way to the bus stop. Enjoy...
On the Swimming...

On the Gymnastics...

ME: [mouthful of Pringles] what a loser
A 41 year old gymnast is competing in her 7th Olympics. I just texted my son and offered him $5 to come downstairs and hand me the remote.— Nice Eric (@ericsshadow) 8 August 2016
Please never let me attend the Olympics because my instinct is to shout, "Be careful!" before every big gymnastics move.— Anne T. Donahue (@annetdonahue) 7 August 2016

On the Synchronised Diving...

If there's a more erotic olympic sport than synchronised diving then i don't want to kno i do what is it what channel is it on— Lucy Prebble (@lucyprebblish) 10 August 2016
On the Olympic spirit...
I retain no knowledge from one Olympics to the next. Every time, "What's a repecharge? What's the peloton? Is judo fought to the death?"— Olly Richards (@olly_richards) 6 August 2016
Me watching the Olympics:— Josie George (@porridgebrain) 7 August 2016
"Who's that man?"
"What does that number mean?"
*cries at someone losing*
*needs a lie down*
In the horse stuff in the Olympics, do the horses get medals? They should get big medals on massive ribbons that go round their necks.— (((Huw))) (@ed_son) 7 August 2016
Nothing brings out the armchair expert quite like the Olympics. Ageing men in their pants, angrily criticising someone's dressage routine.— Jason (@NickMotown) 8 August 2016
