Did you send American boxer Nico Hernandez a congratulatory text for winning an Olympics bronze medal? 

He might not have read the message. 

Hernandez, the first American to win a boxing medal since 2008, seemed to have some trouble with his mobile device on the way to the medal stand. 

"@TMobile lost my phone in Rio before receiving my Medal, can you help me find it?" he tweeted.  

T-Mobile tweeted back that it would if Hernandez sent the company a direct message, it would "do all we can to help!" 

You can call Nico Hernandez an Olympic bronze medalist, just not on his phone.
