Simone Biles caused an unexpected delay in the Olympics closing ceremony

Everyone wants a selfie with Simone Biles' famous smile.

In fact, so many of Biles' fellow Olympic athletes wanted to snap photos with her before the Games came to an end that their selfie-taking wound up delaying the entire Rio closing ceremony.

According to BBC, the closing ceremony parade was dubbed "Simone Selfie Central" by NBC's Mary Carillo, who described the athletes as a "conga line of people" bombarding Biles.

Biles — winner of four gold medals in the 2016 Games — was given the honor of carrying the U.S. flag during the ceremony, but fans didn't let the flag stop them from approaching the gymnast.

Social media gave us a glimpse at just how popular Biles was that evening.
