This was after he congratulated each swimmer in the event, something he apparently always does.

In soccer, it doesn't warrant a look from anyone. Shows the difference in how unsportsmanlike conduct is viewed in different sports. Thing is, he wasn't upset at a referee, a coach or another player. He just missed his PR time. And they DQ'd him after they had given him his first place medal.
