Four-time gold medalist Simone Biles had the honor of being the U.S. flag bearer during the closing ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympics. The gymnast held the U.S. flag full of pride but also caused a bit of a traffic jam because so many people wanted to grab a selfie with her. NBC aired footage of her eager fans jumping in to get a picture, and Instagram and other social media accounts were flooded with selfies afterward.
