The night belonged to the most decorated man in the history of Olympics. By the time the United States reached to 1000th Olympic Gold mark, the legendary Michael Phelps had already created a legacy of his own. Katie Ledecky of US and Joseph Schooling of Singapore, both 19-years-old, had a picture of Phelps signed by the swimmer himself. And they both won Gold at Rio 2016 Olympics along with the 31-year-old Phelps this week.

Such has been Phelps as an idol figure. He has 28 medals overall now, having won five golds and a silver at the Rio games. He had a golden moment on Saturday night after producing an incredible performance to power the US men’s butterfly relay team to victory. That win sealed the 23rd gold medal for the Olympian.

Phelps’ wife Nicole M Johnson took to Twitter to express her excitement. She wrote, “I’m at a loss of words… Just so incredibly proud of @MichaelPhelps and the amazing week he’s had!! What a way to close this chapter.”

Fellow swimmer Cody Miller also congratulated Phelps for his 23rd Gold medal. Miller wrote, “THE G.O.A.T @MichaelPhelps isn’t just an incredible swimmer.. He’s an incredible person & team mate #TeamUSA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŠπŸΌ @USASwimming @NBCOlympics.”

Here’s what other had to say on the micro blogging site, Twitter.
