GB Olympic women's team leave brilliant note for their pissed male teammates

If you've just won a gold medal in the Olympics, you're going to want to party afterwards to celebrate.

But when you overdo it and then have to find your way home to strange accommodation, in a strange city, mistakes can be made.

Last Friday, the British men's team pursuit cyclists - Steven Burke, Owain Doull, Ed Clancy and Bradley Wiggins - set a new world record, completing 4km in three minutes 50.265 seconds, and winning gold in the process.

Clearly a big night was in order after their huge success.

But when the boys came home after a night of drinking, they found this note stuck to a room door.

It reads:

“To the team pursuit men…CONGRATULATIONS!!

“As we’re guessing you’re probably gonna be drunk by the time you read this, and a few of you have already come into our room accidentally – just a friendly reminder that THIS IS NOT YOUR ROOM. So please don’t try and get in at 4am.

“Love, the girls x.”
