Overnight, Kieran Behan took part in the men's gymnastic event in Rio.
To qualify for the final, Behan had to place in the top 24. It looked like he was going to do that heading in the floor routine - his favourite discipline.
However, Behan would suffer misfortune early in the routine when he dislocated his knee. Admirably, he would persevere and finish despite the injury.
On Instagram this evening, Behan gave an update on his situation. He is currently resting at the Olympic village and will undergo a scan tomorrow.
Despite his bad luck, the 27-year-old still appears in good spirits. He expressed his pride at competing for Ireland.
I'm blown away by all the love and support thank you all so much, I feel very proud to have gone out there with the Tricolour on my chest and to have left it all out there. As I'm sure most of you are aware I felt my left knee pop as I landed my first tumble and from that point on I was in survival mode to some how get the rest of my routine done. I'm back in the Olympic village in very safe hands and have an MRI scan tomorrow morning. I will keep you all posted, thank you all again all my love.
Here's Behan's post.
