Helen Skelton’s Dress Has Nothing On Fellow Presenter Mark Foster's 'Short Shorts'

What a fashion choice.

Social media users could hardly believe their eyes on Saturday night when former Olympian Mark Foster appeared in a pair of shorts while presenting the BBC’s swimming coverage.

The swimmer appeared alongside Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Adlington and BBC host Helen Skelton, who also appeared to be wearing clothes - but it was his outfit which caused a stir.

BBC viewers appeared to go into meltdown over his fashion choice...

Foster’s unclothed legs were clearly so irresistible to Adlington that she was spotted with her hand on his thigh.

It’s not just the the Brazilian weather that’s causing things to hot up in the studio clearly.

Indeed this isn’t the first time Foster has been noted for his “short shorts” - in 2013 many were thoroughly excited by his sartorial choice.

Meanwhile BBC presenter Helen Skelton wore a dress...and after a *few* comments about its length, comparisons were drawn with those shorts...

Who knew wearing clothes while presenting the Olympic swimming could cause such a stir?
