Chris’ fellow Olympic winner Rebecca Adlington was one of the first to congratulate him. Rebecca tweeted, ‘Congratulations to you both! Hope Sarra is going well as well as baby Callum!’

The couple announced that they were expecting their first baby in June and Chris recently talked about his excitement about becoming a dad. ‘I think maybe I’m just blindly optimistic that it’s going to be great fun and dead easy,’ the now-retired cyclist told Sky News. ‘I’m sure it won’t be, I’m sure they’ll be lots of tough things but I’m just very excited. It all seems to have happened at the right time.’
