Dirk, was kicking back with his friends when the day turned for the worse and he was set upon by a local thug who also left him with a huge black eye.

The injury was so bad that Dirk was forced to go to the hospital while the Rio thief took off with his mobile phone.

 



But despite losing his mobile Dirk was able to keep hold on to his prized bronze medal and other possessions.

The news was confirmed by the Belgian Olympic Committee who said Dirk was taken to a local hospital but did not receive any treatment.

Dirk later appeared at an event the next day with his medal on the show, all the while also sporting a black eye.

 

Rio’s gangs often target tourists as easy victims for stealing phones, wallets, and passports.
