An Italian athlete had a day to forget at the ongoing World U-20 Athletics Championships in Santiago de Cali, Colombia when his manhood kept dropping out of his shorts in the middle of the race.
Alberto Nonino was one of the participants in the 400 metres decathlon race when the unfortunate occurrence happened.
Nonino started well in one of the middle lanes but slowed off with viewers noticing that he reached down to his private area one too many times.

Sport Bible reports that Nonino kept trying to put his manhood back in his running shorts, but his attempts failed. He ended up finishing last in the race. The 18-year-old immediately took to his Instagram stories after the race to explain the situation.
I just want to talk to you a little bit about what is going on in blogs and social media. I am aware of the situation and it was obviously an accident. I am trying to laugh about it right now, but I felt terrible immediately after the race.
The wardrobe malfunction affected Nonino, who ended up clocking 51.57 seconds.
Similar comparisons can be drawn to Venus Williams' incident at the French Open in 2010, where she wore shorts that matched her skin colour beneath a laced black and red outfit. At a first glance, one would have thought that she was naked.
Her choice of dressing drew widespread reactions from all over. The only difference with Nonino's case was Williams did not have any apologies to make.
