New Zealand gold medal heroes David Liti and Julia Ratcliffe got celebrations underway early before the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony in the Gold Coast, when they danced past a 1 NEWS sports reporter during a hilarious live television cross.
Kiwi athletes Liti and Ratcliffe spoke to 1 NEWS Australian correspondent Kimberlee Downs about their Commonwealth Games campaign before performing a synchronised shoulder dance behind the reporter.
"Is there something going on behind me?" asked Downs during her live cross.
"I am getting a lot of smiles behind me at the moment."
The 1 NEWS reporter saw the funny side of the stunt and laughed off Liti and Ratcliffe's impromptu dance.
Liti won gold in the men's 91kg+ men’s weightlifting division with Ratcliffe winning gold in the women's hammer throw event.
"Maybe this has galvanised them, hearing each other's stories and knowing they are not alone," say the nurses behind the Facebook group, New Zealand, please hear our voice.
