"Terrific Tuesday" at the Rio Olympics saw 24-year-old Laura Trott cruise to an incredible victory in the omnium to claim the fourth gold of her career.
But some viewers have been left feeling outraged at the BBC commentary of a momentous night at the velodrome after a remark made by Chris Boardman.
As Trott watched her fiance Jason Kenny during his own sensational ride, in the keirin final, she understandably looked quite emotional, and viewers heard the commentator say: "She's (Trott) doing all the emotion for him - he's (Kenny) looking at her wondering what's for tea!"
Cue some of them taking to Twitter to vent their frustrations at what they believe is casual sexism.
According to @chrisboardman, Jason Kenny is looking at 4 gold medal winner Laura Trott and thinking "what's for tea". COME. ON.

"He's looking at her going 'what's for tea'." on Kenny celebrating with Trott. @BBC commentary still in the dark ages

The commentator just said of a male gold medalist looking at their ALSO GOLD MEDALIST gf "he's looking at her thinking what's for tea"

"He's looking at her going 'What's for tea?'"
Ah yes @BBCSport because no matter how many medals your partner wins, she should be cooking

Boardman has since defended himself on social media.
Just to clarify, "what's for tea?" is often I question asks me! It's nothing to do with gender!!
-- Chris Boardman (@Chris_Boardman) August 16, 2016
And some people on Twitter appear to agree that he didn't mean the comment in a sexist way.

Jeez, since when is "what's for tea?" a sexist comment? People need to get a life. Bigger things to worry about than that! #Boardman

Feel sorry for @Chris_Boardman that his comment yesterday re. "What's for tea" has been taken out of context & thought to be sexist ?

His wife has come to his defence too, tweeting journalist Sali Hughes who was one of a number of Twitter users to quote the commentator.
@salihughes As his wife, I can tell you he never asks me to make tea, It's like saying what's on TV?
-- Sally Boardman (@Sally_Boardman) August 16, 2016
@Sally_Boardman I absolutely didn't say it did, nor do I think that. I quoted him directly. The issue goes far beyond one voice.
-- Sali Hughes (@salihughes) August 16, 2016
Then, later on, Sally Boardman also tweeted this.
