The younger athletes – especially the swimmers – descended on The Last Lap party at Chinawhite as the swimming competitions finished.

South African gold medal star Chad Le Clos was at the swimming finale party.

The club made sure it was a night to remember for the 20-year-old Olympian, as he was sent a sparkling cocktail worth £2012 to enjoy.

The Golden Cocktail contains a mix of Hennessy Paradis Imperial Cognac, Luxor 24ct gold-leaf champagne and a handmade set of 18ct gold rings, which can be found at the bottom of the glass. The gold rings have been custom-made by London jeweller, Hirsh in 18ct gold and include four precious stones; ruby, black diamond, emerald and sapphire.

The cocktail, which will also be randomly gifted to some lucky British Gold winners, and can be pre-ordered by guests, has been created as part of the “The Last Lap at Chinawhite”, seventeen nights of exclusive events on until 12 August. The series of events is a concept first seen at Sydney in 2000.

Rob Woodhouse, The Last Lap founder and Olympic medalist, said: “Athletes don’t want to think about celebrating until they finish their last race or event. Then it’s party time, and they want to party in the heart of the city they’re in, to experience the local culture. The Last Lap is set to be the best party in town and with this golden cocktail on offer for successful Brits, it’s even more reason to go for gold.”

Ryan Lochte was also partying at Chinawhite, where he was reportedly drinking £500 bottles of Patron Tequila and magnums of Belvedere vodka.

The group, which also included many of the Australian swimming team were presented with bottles of Champagne complete with sparklers coming out of the top.
