Olympic badminton hopeful Sawan Serasinghe may have failed to deliver medal glory for Australia but he’s already captured social media gold after sharing a picture of the epic 8,000 calorie McDonald’s meal he enjoyed after completing his stint at the Games.

Serasinghe was dumbed out of the men’s badminton doubles, along with partner Matthew Chau, following defeat to Chinese Taipei duo Sheng Mu Lee and Chia Hsin.

And he responded to the disappointment in the way most of us responded in moments of adversity or disappointment: he binged on McDonald’s.

But this was no ordinary McDonald’s meal and, if he managed to munch down on all of this without passing out, we’d suggest a medal or at the very least a knighthood should be winging its way to him.

The epic McDonald’s feast, shared in a picture posted on Facebook reads as follows:

One Big Mac

One Double Cheeseburger

Two McChicken Burgers

Two Hamburgers

Four boxes of chicken nuggets

Six portions of fries

Six chocolate brownies

A milkshake

A bottle of water

“Now it’s time to eat some junk food after months of eating clean!”

Commenting on the picture alongside the McFeast, Serasinghe said: “We would have loved to end our first Olympic campaign with a win against a much higher ranked pair.

“Although having said that, there are lots of good things to learn from the matches in the last three days playing against more experienced pairs.”

“Can’t wait to go back home to start training and keep on improving!” he added.

“Now it’s time to eat some junk food after months of eating clean!”

Here’s hoping the 22-year-old comes back in four years time for Tokyo.

Imagine the McDonald’s meal he’ll splurge on if he wins a medal there!
