• Swede jabbed at Cayman with one of his clubs
• Twitter users can't believe their eyes
HENRIK STENSON | OLYMPIC GOLF
We've seen him snap clubs across his knee, strip down to his boxers to play a shot and card one of the great rounds in Open history to win the Claret Jug just five weeks ago. But today, Henrik Stenson did something we've never seen him do: pick a fight with an crocodile.
Playing in the third round of the men's Olympic Golf tournament in Rio de Janeiro - where remains in contention for a medal - the 40-year-old Swede made a bee-line for a Cayman resting in one of the on-course lakes.
Then, in truly bizarre scenes, he POKED it with one of his golf clubs before walking away as if it was the most normal thing in the world.
Don't believe us? Watch the footage here:

What. The. Hell?
Saying that, we probably shouldn't be too surprised; this is the same guy who said who was more scared of bears than mosquitoes when asked about taking part in the Rio despite the 'threat' of the Zika virus. Although on today's evidence, bears probably don't scare him that much either.
Naturally, Twitter users were quick to react to the Swede's antics...
