Nobody is more proud of British gold medal swimmer Adam Peaty than his grandmother Mavis.

Adam Peaty won gold in the 100 meter breaststroke and set a new world record of 57.13 seconds this weekend. And while most grandmas were at home struggling with the remote, Grandma Mavis was gaining thousands of Followers on Twitter.

Pornhub is launching an initiative to keep people safe during the olympics in Rio this year by providing a free membership to anyone in Rio de Janiero. The website to sign up also provides actual information about how to protect yourself from Zika, so it's not all just silly.  

Participants also get to pick the country they are rooting for. The program is relatively new so there aren't a lot of signups yet, but not surprisingly Brazil is in the lead.

You can watch the routine from a better angle in this video from the network taping the routine:
