Chris Morgan receives his bronze alongside Daniel Noonan, James Mcrae and Karsten Forsterling
A bronze medal-winner had to use his medal to get into an Olympic arena after security did not recognise his identification photograph.
Australia's Chris Morgan was stopped by security staff at the ExCeL arena but was let through after he pulled the medal out of his pocket and said: "How's that for ID?"
Morgan, who earned a podium place alongside his team-mates in the men's quadruple sculls, said he thought the image might be questioned at some point because he had grown facial hair since the picture was taken.
He made light of being stopped and even let security staff pose for pictures with the bronze.
"I am carrying my Olympic medal in my pocket because I won't let it out of my sight," he said.
"I've won this medal for myself and I have got it forever. Half the job of an Olympian is to compete and the other half is to try and inspire a future generation.
"I get a real big kick about seeing people's reactions and seeing the joy when people see a medal and get to meet an Olympian."
