The International Olympic Committee on Tuesday banned Russia from participating in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea because of what is being described as an intricate doping scheme.

And the Twitterverse had an absolute blast with it.

Obviously, the link between Russia and President Donald Trump, currently under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, was some of the focus.

But there was a lot more to the responses, too.

Luckily for athletes not involved in the scandal, they can still compete in the Olympics, just under the Olympic flag itself.

How goes your day, Mr. Putin?
