Michael Phelps. How exactly can you describe this superhuman?  The teenager who began his journey at Sydney back in year 2000, when he was touted as the next big thing, when the biggest aim he had was to challenge his role model and competitor Ian Thorpe, is now a legend. On Tuesday in Rio, he won the 4X200m Freestyle relay & 20 Butterfly event, which he lost to Chad Le Clos of South Africa 4 years back and extended his medal tally to 21. In this article we see how twitter reacted to Michael Phelps’ historic golden Tuesday!







The medal tally of the legend is currently 25 with 21 of them being gold. He still has 3 events lined up where he can potentially win the gold again and take his medal tally even further.

This might be the last games where he will compete and we definitely don’t want to miss seeing this most decorated Olympian dorne his country’s colours for the last time.
