    Being the flag bearer in the Closing Ceremony has its privileges. But it also makes you stick out in the crowd.

    Simone Biles knows this firsthand after carrying the American flag during the Rio finale Sunday night. While it was an honor to carry the flag, it also meant that selfie seekers could track her down pretty easily.

    Many fellow Olympians wanted to take a picture with Biles after her outstanding gymnastics performance during the 2016 Olympics. Seems like she won over as many fans outside of the U.S. as she did stateside.

    Here's a sampling of the pictures that showed up on social media:
