Donald Trump took on Hillary Clinton in their first televised debate ahead of the US presidential election in November.
With tens of millions of people tuned in to watch, there were fiery exchanges and controversial accusations, but a lot of people were mostly annoyed that Trump sniffed throughout the 90 minute debate.
