American bobsledder Johnny Quinn took matters into his own hands on Saturday when he got stuck in his Olympic village bathroom after locking himself in - smashing a huge hole to break out.

The former American football wide receiver, at his first Olympics, posted a photo on Twitter of the door after he had smashed through it, with the hashtag #SochiJailBreak.

"I was taking a shower and the door got locked/jammed...," Quinn, a push athlete on the USA-2 four-man sled, wrote on his Twitter page @JohnnyQuinnUSA.

"With no phone to call for help, I used my bobsled push training to break out."

Athletes and journalists in Sochi have bemoaned that accommodation has not been finished, taking to Twitter to vent their grumbles.
