That’s after the four-time medal winner finished fifth in the final of the men’s 200m butterfly and a disappointing tie for 18th in the heats for the 100m butterfly where he failed to qualify for the 16-man semi-finals.

The Durban-native, at 29-years-old now a veteran of the pool, claimed a memorable gold medal in the 200m butterfly nine years ago at the 2012 London Olympics as well as a silver in the 100m butterfly at the same Games.

He followed that up with silvers in the 100m butterfly and 200m freestyle at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016.

Chad le Clos was at a loss to explain his performance in the 100m butterfly heats, according to SuperSport.

“It’s tough. I don’t know what happened. I don’t know what to say. No excuses… I can’t make excuses. I lost fair and square to everyone else. It’s devastating,” was all he could manage.

Chad le Clos added: “I’ll be back… I’ll win this in 2024.”

That may have been fighting talk in the immediate aftermath of defeat, but unfortunately a highly unlikely scenario.

‘The River’s’ Nomonde forgives Mabutho for lying about his identity

Nomonde will do anything to protect the man she loves even she learns his identity. We'll see her fighting Lindiwe and Zweli in August,

‘The River’s’ Nomonde forgives Mabutho for lying about his identity

Emma (Lunathi Mampofu) has wished bad luck on Nomonde(Linda Mtoba) from the beginning because she’s always been jealous of her.

Beauty (Galaletsang Koffman) informed Emma that Nomonde’s boyfriend Mabutho (Thembinkosi Mthembu) is a miner who lives in a shack with his cousin Paulina (Tango Ncetezo)  in Refilwe.

Emma is happy that Nomonde’s boyfriend isn’t the millionaire he’s been pretending to be.

Nomonde announced last night that she’s bringing her boyfriend over for a braai.

She has no idea that Mabutho was Lindiwe’s son-in-law as he was married to Lindiwe’s daughter Tumi Mokoena-Dikana (Larona Moagi).

NOMONDE IS UNLUCKY IN LOVE

Nomonde has never been lucky in love and has always dated men who either manipulate her, use her or lie to her.

Nomonde and Tumi are always dating the same men on The River.

She also dated Mabutho’s cousin Lindani (Lunga Shabalala) who also married her step-sister Tumi Mokoena.

She will be crushed when she finds out that Mabutho is lying to her because she’s head-over-heels in love with him

AUGUST SPOILERS

Nomonde will eventually find out who Mabutho is according to the August teasers.

It will be hard for her to accept the truth but she’ll eventually accept Mabutho and forgive him for lying to her.

The rest of the Dikanas won’t be as forgiving though because they already know Mabutho.
