SWIMMER Rebecca Adlington has taken the plunge and become engaged, she announced yesterday.
The former Olympic champion declared herself to be the “happiest person ever” after Harry Needs, a fellow swimmer, popped the question.
Adlington, 24, who announced her retirement from competitive swimming last month, told her Twitter followers: “Had the best weekend ever! Thank you @Harryneeds for making me the happiest person ever right now #engaged #I-said-‘yes’.”
She added that she had been celebrating with friends.
