THE Olympics swimming pool that has turned bright green also has a strangely familiar smell, officials have admitted.
Rio Olympics organisers initially denied there was anything wrong with a swimming pool having grape-coloured water, claiming that water just goes that colour sometimes.
However they had since admitted that it does not smell great either.
A spokesman said: “I’m not confirming any speculation but you’d be fine to go in it as long as you don’t swallow anything.
“I’d probably wear goggles too.”
He added: “These foreigners are animals. You should see what they did in the long jump pit.”
