Rebecca Adlington denies romance with her Rio co-host Mark Foster
Rebecca Adlington has denied claims she is dating Mark Foster after she was caught on camera stroking his leg.
The Olympic gold medallist (27) and ex-world swimming champion Foster (46) arrived at Tuesday night's GQ Men of the Year awards arm-in-arm, sparking yet more speculation that they are an item.
While presenting the swimming at the Rio Olympics, viewers commented on the pair's on-screen chemistry and body language on Twitter.
But Adlington, who split from husband Harry Needs in March after 18 months of marriage, said: "I touched his knee. It wasn't like I grabbed higher. I needed to get his attention."
