Rebecca Adlington is hoping to carve out a career in television presenting

Rebecca Adlington wants to become a sports pundit.

The former Olympic swimmer - who retired from the sport three years ago - has just jetted out to Brazil to commentate on the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio on behalf of the BBC and now wants to become a full-time sports presenter.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "I am doing the punditry out in Rio so I get to go do the BBC coverage which is great. I am doing much more type of sport TV coverage in that sense and that is the route I would definitely like to go down and I'm the most passionate about."

Meanwhile, Rebecca has left her 13-month-old daughter Summer in the capable hands of her estranged husband Harry Needs, whom she split from in March, while she's away.

The 27-year-old beauty said recently: "She's going on holiday with Harry and his family. We have a great relationship. Our two families are a great support. It's all about balance. I am very lucky that I can still do something I love and still spend time with Summer."

Rebecca is encouraging children to "just keep moving" this summer, as she launches nationwide interactive family swim sessions and a brand new 10 Minute Shake Up campaign - all inspired by the new Disney Pixar blockbuster, 'Finding Dory'.
