Crocodiles and lily pads spotted in Olympic diving pool

Brazilian authorities have confirmed that three crocodiles and hundreds of lily pads appeared overnight in the Olympic diving pool.

The latest development follows Tuesday’s mysterious, but strangely underplayed, incident during which the water at the same venue turned a spooky deep green colour in the space of half an hour.

Biodiversity experts have set up a hide at the edge of the water, in the hope of making further unexpected sightings, with a school of piranhas at the top of their wish list.

A spokesman for the swimming venue said, “We basically don’t know what the fuck is going on, short of mother nature appears to be taking over.

“I was half expecting to find the stadium covered in jungle vines this morning.

“But whatever happens, those crocodiles are going to make excellent viewing when the 3-metre springboard diving gets underway tomorrow.

“I’d record the highlights package if I were you.”
