Rebecca Adlington clears up romance rumours following date night with Mark Foster

Rebecca Adlington and Mark Foster have been the subject of romance reports following their time at the Rio Olympics this summer. On Monday night they added fuel to the rumours as they arrived arm-in-arm at the GQ Awards.

Becky also posted a sweet photo of the pair on the night, adding a love heart emoji in her caption.

After her followers started to comment on what a beautiful "couple" the pair made, Becky felt the need to clear up the speculation.

She replied to her fans on Instagram, thanking them for their comments and adding: "Me and mark are good friends. That is all. Trust me."

Last month Becky, 27, caused a frenzy amongst viewers when she appeared to grab Mark's leg in the middle of their Olympics swimming coverage. But Mark, 46, later insisted that the incident had been entirely innocent.

"It's funny the attention we've been getting at the BBC with people remarking on Becky touching my leg," he said. "But the reality is that Becky does that simply to get my attention either when she has something to say or else she wants me to butt in."

The 27-year-old denied the rumours on Instagram

Becky surprised fans earlier this year when she and her husband Harry Needs announced their split in March, signalling an end to their 18-month marriage.

The pair have remained on cordial terms and are focusing on their one-year-old daughter Summer.

Becky often shares photos of her adorable daughter on Instagram and earlier this week she delighted fans with the cutest video. The clip showed Summer following in her mum's footsteps, quite literally, as she tried on her mum's very stylish – and very expensive – Christian Louboutin shoes.

"Loves shoes just like her mummy got expensive taste," Becky wrote.
