Mayor Bites Olympian's Gold Medal

An Olympic athlete belonging to Toyota showed off her gold medal at a press conference in Nagoya City. At the time, the mayor had the gold medal put around his neck and bit it to see if it was gold or not. He was mimicking an action seen in movies, and needless to say, this became a big problem.

The mayor later went to the Toyota Motor Corporation, where the athlete works, to apologize, but he was turned away and unable to. Needless to say, the city of Nagoya received a large number of email complaints because of this incident. In the end, the gold medal will be replaced and the mayor says he will pay for it.

This is such a ridiculous incident in Japan, but I wonder if it is being reported overseas. It is a pity that the mayor was recently elected and his term will continue until the next mayoral election.
