On Tuesday night, the twenty-year-old cyclist was out at a club where he proceeded to celebrate.
He celebrated to the point of intense drunkenness. His teammates carried him out of the club…
And tried to get him into a van to take them back to the Olympic village.

When the photos were published in London newspapers, the Belgian Olympic Committee discussed the issue with the cycling team and decided that van Hoecke must return home immediately.
