Olympic athletes have been ordering ridiculous amounts of food from McDonald's, forcing the free restaurant in the village to place a 20 items limit on orders, according to the Washington Post.
The order limit has been imposed to limit the time athlete's have to spend waiting in line, with some athletes literally waiting hours to place their order.
The line is rarely shorter than a football field even at 5am and athletes queue in all sorts of weather including the torrential down pours that Rio has produced during the games.
The free food has been like a red rag to a bull to some athletes and Australian badminton player Sawan Serasinghe is a prime example - posting a picture of his king sized McDonald's order to his Instagram account.
The athletes see the free food as a release from months of hard work and Serasinghe captioned his picture 'Now it's time to eat some junk food after months of eating clean'.
Athlete's have also cited that they ate at the restaurant because the games village cafe food was 'not very good' and it was also a way to celebrate victories.
At any given time athletes from all over the world can be found queuing up for a burger and even Australia's own Basketball superstar Andrew Bogut has eaten there.
Serbian women's tennis player and former world number one, Jelena Jankovic is another high profile athlete who has enjoyed a 'cheat meal'.
