Australian Badminton player Sawan Serasinghe drowned his Rio loss sorrows like only an Olympian can: with an 8,000-calorie gorgefest at Mickey D's.



His fans don't seem too upset about it yet...



...but just wait until that 8,000 calories hits his thighs





It started with four members of the Australian women's water polo being struck down with a virus just days out from the opening ceremony.  Then a fire broke out in the underground carpark of the building where the Australian olympians are staying.   The team is also plagued with thefts of uniforms and laptops.

For the price of A$49, an Australian man won a tropical island. It's a tropical resort on the Micronesian island of Kosrae.

The island has a population of over 6,500 people and is part of the Federated States of Micronesia.

The winner will be the owner of a tropical resort, has his own residence, can take five cars, a pick-up truck and two ten-seater vans for a spin. Not too shabby...

Australia's prime minister,Malcolm Turnbull, just came up with a new campaign premise that 'Veep' fans will be a little too familiar with. He talks about keeping continuity... but also changing, something that Julia Louise-Dreyfus's character on 'Veep' also promised.

Actors and creators involved on the show, 'Veep', commented on how surprised they were that this turned into a real political talking point.  Maybe they were too good at parodying politics?
