Golden moment for Dutch windsurfer

It was a special night for one Olympic gold medalist!

Dutch gold medallist Dorian van Rijsselberghe scored a huge win in windsurfing in Rio, but it was what happened after the medal ceremony that was a huge highlight of his day. Dorian, who chose to come to the Rio Games with only his coach by his side in order to stay focused, stopped by Heineken's Holland House to celebrate his win -- and they pulled out an extra special surprise for him.

The 27-year-old walked down the Heineken Holland House's walk of fame at their famous medal party as the crowds cheered. Then he took to the stage to thank everyone for coming out to support him. That's when Heineken representatives asked him to put on a virtual reality helmet for a special video. Inside the experience, he saw his friends and family back home in Holland expressing how excited they were that he won.

Unbeknownst to him, Heineken flew out his brother to Rio and he snuck up behind Dorian while he still had the helmet on! When Dorian took it off, he got the surprise of his life with his brother right there to share in his Olympic joy.

After the ceremony Dorian told AOL in an exclusive interview that he was overcome with emotion when he saw his brother. "I almost cried, especially when I saw him crying. It was a moment I'll never forget and it was so great to celebrate with him after winning gold again."

"Now I'm ready to party!"
