This has been a great week for the Olympics. First, Lochte-gate. And now a couple doing sex-like stuff—maybe actual sex!—on a Rio beach has been accidentally broadcast around the world by the BBC.

BBC reporter Dan Walker was broadcasting from a beach in Rio Thursday night when viewers noticed the amorous couple on the sand behind him. Some chimed in on Twitter, and Walker responded on air.
“For those asking what’s going on back there on social media now, we’re not going to zoom in, but rest assured—it’s not that,” he said. “It’s just a hug. They’re reading a book. They’re reading a book in a strange pose.”
If you say so, man.
