At least one Olympic bathroom seems to be flush with toilets.
When BBC reporter Steve Rosenberg went to use the bathroom at the cross-country skiing and biathlon center for next month’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, he found two toilets but only one stall.
His tweeted picture instantly became a national joke.
Although toilets like that are not common in Russia, social media users posted photos of other side-by-side toilets, including ones in a courthouse and a cafe.
The editor of the state R-Sport news agency said such communal toilets are standard at Russian soccer stadiums.
“Why are the BBC folks scaring us?” Vasily Konov wrote in this personal Twitter account. “This is what the gents look like at football stadiums in Russia.”
