Olympic Becky ‘in 4-let­ter shocker’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SWIM SWEAR: Becky and Mark LATE-night Olympic view­ers were stunned when medal­list Becky Adling­ton seemed to tell co-host Mark Fos­ter to ‘f**k off’ live on TV.

The 27-year-old ap­peared to shout the ex­ple­tive af­ter for­mer world champ and fel­low swim­mer Fos­ter mocked her for “only win­ning a bronze” at the Lon­don Olympics.

View­ers turned to so­cial me­dia to express their con­ster­na­tion at what they’d ap­par­ently just wit­nessed on the BBC cov­er­age.

One user tweeted: “More BBC swim­ming com­men­tary fun. Re­becca Adling­ton just told Mark Fos­ter to f**k off. Luck­ily it’s around 3.20am in the UK.”

An­other said: “Did Re­becca Adling­ton just say f**k off live on the telly? That’ll be cut from the re­plays when the eas­ily out­raged awake.”

While some were shocked when they first heard the pos­si­ble ex­ple­tive, on a re­peat lis­ten it sounds more like ‘back off’.

An al­leged blos­som­ing ro­mance be­tween the pair – com­bined with con­tro­versy over He­len Skel­ton’s ‘racy’ out­fits – means the pre­sen­ters seem to be at­tract­ing more at­ten­tion than com­peti­tors in the pool.

The ru­mours about the pair’s flour­ish­ing at­trac­tion were sparked when Becky ap­peared to rub Mark’s thigh un­der the ta­ble on Sun­day.
