Rumours started at the beginning of the Olmpics that athletes were said to be sleeping on ‘anti-sex beds’.
The sustainable beds are made out of recycled cardboard and can hold up to 200kg — but there are rumours the bunks were built to deter athletes from hooking up.
They have apparently been designed to crumble when more than one person climbs on — so scores of athletes from across the world’s teams have taken to social media to share hilarious clips of them competing to debunk the anti-sex myth.
Team Ireland gymnast Rhys McClenaghan debunked the myth in a Twitter video, jumping on the bed to prove their sturdiness.
