Getting stuck into the beers before midday is perfectly normal for punters attending the Melbourne Cup.

What follows usually ends in a mess of people lying on the ground in their finest outfits and fascinators, plenty of people playing stacks on and an unusual amount of people playing with bins.

With crowds not permitted to attend the 2020 Melbourne Cup due to COVID-19, here we take a look back at some of the most debauched moments captured after Australia's biggest race.
