Irish gymnast Rhys McClenaghan has dispelled the myth about 'anti-sex' beds at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo – jumping up and down on his to prove they actually don't break.
Reports emerged earlier this week suggesting the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had come up with a crafty solution to deter athletes from getting beneath the sheets together amid strict Covid regulations at this year's games.
In the notoriously sex-positive Olympic village, beds were said to have been made out of cardboard and designed to only withstand the weight of one person.
Any sudden movements would supposedly break the bed, which can be recycled once used.
However, McClenaghan, 21, has proved the rumours are not true after arriving in Tokyo.
The Team Ireland Olympian posted a video on Twitter from inside his room at the village, where he jumps up and down on his bed to show they will not break as expected from any sudden movements or extra weight.
Do you think the Olympic Games should be going ahead in Tokyo without spectators? Let us know in the comments section below.
"On today's episode of fake news at the Olympic Games, the beds are meant to be anti-sex," McClenaghan says at the start of the video.
As he begins jumping on the bed, he then continues: "They're made of cardboard, yes. But apparently they're meant to break at any sudden movements.
"It's fake. Fake news!"
It remains to be seen if other reports about Olympian sex regulations also prove inaccurate, as athletes are said to have been warned not to use any of the free condoms that would be supplied at the Olympic village in Tokyo this summer.
