Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, the most decorated American Olympian ever, won his record setting 21st Olympic gold medal last night. And USA basketball players were in the mix to celebrate the historic accomplishment.

Kevin fanned out about meeting Michael. On Instagram, he said, "In the presence of greatness."  The new Golden State Warriors baller said previously he tried to meet Michael during the opening ceremony, but never got the chance to link up. He finally got his chance last night.

He also showed Katie some hometown love. They're both D.C. natives.

In unfortunate news, two Olympic boxers have been arrested for sexual assault in Rio. According to reports, 22-year-old Jonas Junius, a light welterweight for Namibia and served as their flag bearer during the opening ceremonies, was arrested by Brazilian police for allegedly attempting to force himself on a maid in Olympic Village. 

Days earlier, Olympic boxer Hassan Saada of Morocco was arrested last Friday for allegedly sexually assaulting two waitresses who were employed at the Olympic Village at Barra da Tijuca.

They’ve got to do better!
