Sports stars often show emotion at the finish - but speedskater Sjinkie Knegt took it to a new level after losing a race.
The Sochi-bound Dutchman lost to Russia's Victor Ahn at the ISU European Short Track speed skating Championships - and immediately showed the victor what he thought.
The double bird salute has had other ramifications for Knegt - he was later disqualified for the rude gesture.
The athletes will renew their rivalry when the Winter Olympics start next month.
