North Korea due to play Colombia in the women's football and the electronic scoreboard showing the players pics of North Korea had the South Korean flag next to them.
North Korea walked off and the game has only just begun, an hour late. Apologies from the organising commitee already flying around, unsurprisingly.

"Today ahead of the women's football match at Hampden Park, the South Korean flag was shown on a big screen video package instead of the North Korean flag. Clearly that is a mistake," organizers said. "We will apologize to the team and the National Olympic Committee and steps will be taken to ensure this does not happen again."
The statement, however, included another gaffe: It failed to refer to the countries by their official Olympic names, causing organizers to reissue the statement using "Republic of Korea" and "Democratic People's Republic of Korea."
