She would not admit who was getting it on or who called her, however did share that she and some Great Britain colleagues hurried over to the space and cupped their ears to the wall for some casual voyeurism.
Winning a gold medal for Great Britain in the heptathlon may’ve kept Lewis too hectic to get hectic.
Sex among the world’s finest professional athletes on top phase is absolutely nothing brand-new though.
