23-time Olympic champion swimming phenom, Michael Phelps himself, congratulated Hungarian Kristóf Milák on his victory.

As we previously reported, Kristóf Milák easily won the 200m butterfly this morning, breaking the Olympic record and grabbing Hungary’s second gold in Tokyo.

That previous Olympic record actually belonged to Phelps, perhaps providing yet another reason for the American to express his compliments.

“Nice swim Kristóf Milák. Amazing to watch ya swim in person… Amazing last 100,” Phelps, who won a total of 28 Olympic medals and who retired after the Rio Games, commented on Instagram.
