Victoria celebrated her first Double Donut day in weeks with a cheeky nod to exuberant Australian swim coach Dean Boxall.
The state recorded no cases of the coronavirus acquired locally and abroad on Wednesday, just days after the Victorians were lifted from their fifth lockdown.
State health director Professor Brett Sutton expressed his joy as he shared a meme of Boxall’s crazy post-race celebration at the Tokyo Olympics.
The Australian coach made headlines around the world last week after his wild antics when swimmer Ariarne Titmus eclipsed American legend Katie Ledecky to win gold in the 400-meter freestyle.

Boxall was caught on TV cameras tearing off his face mask as he excitedly slammed into the air and rocked the glass barrier.
Dr Sutton’s cheeky tweet was quickly inundated with comments from fellow Victorians celebrating the news.
Many others saw the funny side.
‘P *** yeah!’ One commented, referring to Australian swimming gold medalist Kaylee McKeown’s F-bomb on live TV after the race.

All of Victoria was plunged into a two-week lockdown last month after an outbreak of the highly contagious Delta strain crossed the border from NSW.
Over 20,000 Victorians were placed in 14-day solitary confinement after being seen as close contact
Victoria currently has 99 active cases of Covid-19 with 2,000 close contacts still in self-isolation.
More than 30,000 Victorians showed up for testing on Tuesday while another 17,612 rolled up their sleeves for the Covid-19 jab.
