Captained by Ryan Giggs, the side also featured aces including Craig Bellamy, Aaron Ramsey and Daniel Sturridge.
However, Team GB ended up crashing out of the tournament in the quarters after losing on penalties to South Korea.
The London Games saw sportspeople from all over the world living together in close proximity.
As a result, some decided to partake in all there was to offer, from the free food to photos with celebrities.
But it was a “massive room full of condoms” that really caught the attention of Richards and the athletes.
And speaking with Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer, he admitted he “was on fire” during the tournament.
Richards told the Rest is Football podcast: “It was the party of all parties. You got all the different athletes, all sorts of different specimens in there.

“Absolutely everything was there, we had McDonalds there, a Chinese, a big cafeteria with everything you want, it’s free.
“It’s what I imagine when you go to uni when you’re in halls and sharing a room, I was with Daniel Sturridge.
“Kobe Bryant was there, people were taking pictures with him, we were standing around exploring the village. I went up to say ‘legend, is it possible to have a photo’, and he said ‘no not right now!’
“I never felt so silly in all my life, he didn’t have a clue who Big Meeks was!
“We were there for three nights, we went training, come back to the village, them three nights we were up to 4am.
“You have different campuses, Team GB in one block, Brazil, France, all these countries, and there’s a massive big room full of condoms!
“It was like what, obviously promoting safe sex, and honest to god, I was on fire.
“I was on absolute fire, honestly. I was a little slimmer, a bit more ripped, bit more lean, it was summer time, walking around with my top off.
“There was multiple gold medals. one of the best times of my life, it was incredible.”
This prompted Alan Shearer to wittily retort: “No wonder you lot got beat on penalties, you were absolutely knackered!”
