Thai boxer Kaeo Pongprayoon lost the light-flyweight Olympic gold medal match to China's Zou Shiming last night. Zou fought a sneaky three rounds, hanging onto his opponent and tackling him to the floor at one point in what looked like an attempt to stop the Thai boxer scoring points. There was also a controversial warning given to Kaeo in the third round, costing him two points. Kaeo still wouldn't have won the bout without the penalty (based on the final score cards), but the way the fight went down, I think most people watching thought the Thai deserved the victory.

Almost on cue, Thais took to social media to voice their displeasure at the result. Some boxing fans went so far as to fire up Photoshop, the results of which are in pretty poor taste, as you can see below. You could really have predicted how this would play out based on previous instances of pissed-off Thais venting in online spaces.
