British diver Chris Mears was about to be presented with his newly won Olympic gold medal when he realized there was a problem.

Mears was filmed in the locker room in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday wearing a towel, moments after placing first in the synchronized 3m springboard competition, when at least one camera captured his reaction to his conundrum, as the Daily Mail highlighted.

"Where are my f***ing trousers?" Mears is heard saying as he frantically searches beneath one of the benches.

An Olympics official is then seen looking at his watch, as if to send a message to for Mears to hurry up.

Mears' diving partner Jack Laugher saves the day when he finds the Olympian's long-lost pants in his own duffel bag. The two then made their way back out into the auditorium to be awarded their gold medals — with their clothes on, of course.
