James Magnussen leaves a media conference after owning up to taking part in 'stupid' pre-Games pranks in Sydney on Feb 22. Members of the 4x100m freestyle relay team, led by Magnussen, admitted taking sleeping pills at a training camp in Manchester and then making random prank telephone calls and knocking on teammates' doors in the middle of the night.
