French gymnast Samir Ait Said has become the first Olympic athlete to be taken out of the games by a serious injury.

On day one, Said was competing in the team preliminaries on the vault when a bad landing snapped his leg in half.

 

He was carried out on a stretcher to a standing ovation.

 

Viewers reckon the sound of his leg snapping echoed throughout the arena, which is pretty damn brutal.

Check out the video above.
