Every year the world's best national rugby teams gather in Hong Kong to duke it out over the course of three days in front of a massive international audience. This is the Hong Kong Sevens, an event which has become as famous for silly costumes and drunken chaos as it has for hosting men playing with oddly shaped balls. Last year Kim Jong Un himself went viral on the notorious South Stand, where the 'Dear Leader' allegedly made out of with '30 to 40' women at the 2015 Sevens.

The 2016 installment of the Hong Kong Sevens hasn't failed to live up to its reputation, with an image of a man passed out in a urinal going viral following the weekend's festivities. (Though some have expressed doubt as to the image's authenticity, with one cunning sleuth tracing the picture's possible origins back to South Carolina).coconuts-hk-pissup1.jpg

Nonetheless, the 2016 edition of the drinking tournament with a rugby problem elicited some fabulous photos from the past weekend's revelry. Relive the madness with our look at some of the highlights...
