Weightlifter Andranik Karapetyan, from Armenia, has suffered a gruesome unjury at the Rio games.

The 20-year-old was rushed to hospital in, what looked like ,serious pain after appearing to dislocate his elbow during the men’s 77kg competition.

He injured himself as he attempted to lift 195kg in the clean and jerk - hoping to secure a bronze medal.

Instead, halfway through the atempt, his left album seemed to pop out; shocking Karapetyan and on-lookers.
