The Olympics are in full swing and just about everyone is tuning in to cheer their athletes on in the Games.

For Chinese netizens, however, the results of the men’s gymnastics all-around event has them fuming in anger. 

They felt that the judges unfairly deducted points from 25-year-old Chinese gymnast Xiao Ruoteng, causing him to miss out narrowly on the gold medal. Japan's Daiki Hashimoto, 19, emerged champion while Ruoteng was awarded the silver medal.

According to reports, Ruoteng had 0.3 points deducted for not saluting the judges to indicate the end of his routine during his final set. Ruoteng's final score was 0.4 of a point short of Hashimoto's score of 88.465.
