Irish Gymnast Rhys McClenaghan has debunked one of the biggest viral stories going into the Summer Olympics in Japan.

Earlier this week a story went viral on the Internet that claimed the beds in Japan inside the Olympic Village were made out of cardboard to prevent athletes from having sex with each other during the Olympic games.

On Sunday McClenaghan, who is already at the Olympic Village, uploaded a video of himself jumping up and down on the cardboard bed while calling the viral “anti-sex’ beds story “fake news.”

Hats off to Rhys for the top notch journalism and getting to the bottom of the very important story about whether or not athletes can bone on their cardboard beds during the Olympics.
