Adam Peaty denies needing stitches amid reports of ‘bust up with Team GB teammate

Strictly star and Team GB swimming hero Adam Peaty has denied that he 'needed stitches' on his face after a 'bust-up' with his sports teammate Luke Greenbank.

A representative for Adam admitted that there was a 'minor disagreement' between the pair, but said that it had been 'dealt with'.

It had been reported that fists were thrown after eight-time world champion Adam, 28, made a joke about 25 year old Luke's girlfriend, Anna Hopkin, 27.

He is also reported to have slapped Luke on the backside when he made the quip – causing Luke to see red, which is said to have left Luke with a bloody face.

A source told The Sun: “It was absolute carnage. Peaty was being cocky and made a joke at Greenbank’s expense, before touching his backside. But his actions touched a real nerve for Greenbank and it got very heated.

“Peaty was left with a bloody face and needing treatment.”

The incident is believed to have happened on Friday at Loughborough University, where the Team GB stars were training.

The same source told the publication: "Those around them persuaded Peaty and Greenbank to shake hands and put the fight behind them.”

Greenbank and Peaty previously competed alongside each other during Team GB relay races and even won silver in the 100m medley at the Tokyo Olympics.

Adam is widely regarded as the best breaststroke swimmer in history, having won eight world championships.

When contacted by OK!, Adam's representatives denied that he needed stitches on his face, although they did admit that there was a 'disagreement' between him and Luke.

The rep said: "There was a minor disagreement between Adam and his teammate following a training session on Friday.

"It was dealt with and resolved between the two of them at the time."

Adam, who appeared on Strictly in 2021, is currently in a relationship with Gordon Ramsay's daughter, Holly Ramsay, 23, after splitting with Eiri Munro, the mother of his child, in August last year.

News of Adam's relationship with Holly Ramsay emerged in May, and a month later, they were spotted on a romantic holiday together in Italy.

The famous chef's daughter and swimming champ weren't afraid of some PDA as they were snapped sharing a kiss while taking a stroll through the city's streets.

Dressed for the Italian summer Holly donned a colourful pink and orange floral dress, which she teamed with a pair of white trainers. She accessorised further with some black sunglasses and gold jewellery, sporting both a necklace and some bracelets.

Adam recently gushed over his girlfriend as she posted a snap to Instagram in a pink bikini whilst catching some rays in the garden.

In a carousel of pics, all pink-themed, Holly treated her followers to a snap where she donned a pink bralette and matching shorts. Posing with a hand on her hip in a changing room, she captioned the photos: "Pink forever."

Boyfriend Adam left a playful comment on the post as he quipped: “merch incoming” followed by a heart eyes emoji.
