12:56 pm on 9 February 2014

American bobsledder Johnny Quinn took matters into his own hands when he got stuck in his Olympic village bathroom after locking himself in - smashing a huge hole to break out.

The former American football wide receiver, at his first Olympics, posted a photo on Twitter of the door after he had smashed through it, with the hashtag #SochiJailBreak.

Athletes and journalists in Sochi have bemoaned that accommodation has not been finished, taking to Twitter to vent their grumbles.
