Cuban Angel Valodia Matos was leading the bronze medal match for taekwondo's 80-kg division when he was disqualified for taking longer than the minute allowed for an injury. So he did what any reasonable athlete would do: he kicked the referee in the face. So instead of an Olympic medal he gets a lifetime ban from his sport.
The best part of the video, aside from the face-kicking and the Australian commentator who says "brain explosion," is the bronze medal winner from Kazakhstan celebrating wildly with his country's flag. Yeah, way to win by default, buddy. The referee who gave you the fight got kicked in the face. Live it up.
(Fast-forward to about the 2:30 mark for face-kicking; alternate video at Machochip)
