Oh, the problems of a medal-winning athlete.

British gymnash Louis Smith just tweeted that he is having a few problems in the trouser department because of something few of us will ever have to worry about: the weight of his shiny new bronze Olympic medal.

"Hahaha you know this Olympic medal is heavy when you gotta tie ya draw strings up on my joggers..." he tweeted. He finished by saying that the subsequent effect was — how to say this a bit more delicately than the tweet? — revealing his backside.

Smith was part of the five-man British squad that won the home nation's first Olympic team gymnastics medal in a century Monday night.
