Cuban taekwondo athlete Angel Matos lost his cool during the 2008 Beijing Olympics. During a timeout, Matos received treatment for an injured foot. The treatment however took too long and the referee was forced to disqualify Matos for exceeding the time limit. Matos was not happy with the decision and gave the referee a kick to the face. Then he spit on the arena floor and was eventually escorted from the ring. The coach and Matos received lifetime bans from the sport.
