Some of the contestants on Robot Wars take their craft VERY seriously – and a man on tonight's show proved that in hilarious style.

When the contestant lost out to a group of rather talented children, he was none too happy and promptly stormed off the set.

For the sake of us all, the glorious moment was captured by the Guardian's Matt Belam, who dubbed the man's reaction "priceless". We have to agree.

People were pretty unforgiving of the man's actions, with one saying: "the absolute state of him" and "hold it together".

And another made reference to the recent Oscars confusion, in which La La Land was wrongly presented with Moonlight's trophy.

"Would have loved an #Oscars style mix-up where they had to call him back! Punching holes in the wall right now I reckon!"

Others defended the contestant's actions, saying that the children's team "used a stupid hair clipper attachment as a weapon".

At least one other person could totally see where the guy was coming from, though.

"I mean if I spent £10s of thousands and 18 years on something and they awarded a win to kids because theyre cute I'd be annoyed".

It seems that battle lines are being drawn on both sides – who would have thought that a friendly robot battle show could have caused so much bad blood?
