Rebecca Adlington denies romance with her Rio co-host Mark Foster

By Sherna Noah

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."
