Earlier this week, social media went into meltdown after the double Olympic champion was caught seemingly groping Foster's leg during the swimming coverage earlier this week.
The viral video appears to show Adlington stroking Foster's leg under the table while presenting the swimming coverage earlier this week.
” In his Evening Standard column today Foster, 46, wrote: “It’s been funny the attention we’ve been getting at the BBC with people remarking on Becky touching my leg.
“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.” Referring to Adam Peaty’s gold medal victory yesterday in the 100m breaststroke, Foster added: “I joked to camera when Becky was crying after Adam’s win that it was because I’d just proposed to her!
Posting photos of herself, Foster, and the team on Twitter, Adlington wrote: “Good to be in Rio with these lovely people!
