Phelps lost the top spot on the Olympic podium for the first time ever in the Men's 100m butterfly event - and for the first time during his incredible run in Rio.
Joseph Schooling, a 21-year-old from Singapore, took home the gold with a record time of 50.39 seconds.
Three-quarters of a second later, Phelps touched the wall at the same moment as South Africa's Chad le Clos and Hungary's Laszlo Cseh, all three recording a time of 51.14 seconds.
'It is a wild way to end my individual career. It is just wild,' Phelps said after the race. I was like 'Three? Three of us tied for third?'
