The 2016 Olympic Games has come and gone. It’s left us with some great memories, so let’s take a look one more time.

According to Mashable, the IOC went to great lengths to try and stop its events being shared on social media, but that didn’t stop celebrities and athletes themselves from reporting on what it was like to be competing in Rio de Janeiro in real life.

Just to take us back one more time, here’s some of the most liked posts, to show what it was like.
