Despite being a world-renowned Olympic cycling champion, Sir Chris Hoy was forced to produce ID to enter a stadium named in his honour.
The Scot arrived at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome to catch the first day's cycling action at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, only to be asked to prove who he was by a security guard.
It appears the staff member soon realised her mistake, with BBC radio reporting that she said "my mum's going to kill me".
It was the second unusual incident of the Games for Hoy, who had to help Malaysia's Prince Imran open a baton containing a message from the Queen.
Again, Sir Chris took the incident in his stride with a tongue-in-cheek tweet shortly after.
