Michael Phelps has got one of the meanest game faces we’ve ever seen – and people are LOVING it.
The gold medalist is the most talked about Olympian online today seconds after NBC captured the American staring down his competitor.
South African rival Chad le Clos was shadowing boxing in front of Michael as he prepared to get his head in the game.
Nothing broke his concentration even as Chad jumped and shook about in front of the Olympic champ.
Not long after it was aired his face was all over Twitter.
He’s now become a meme with many comparing him to Star Wars’ baddy Darth Vadar.
