Double Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Adlington has been praised in Parliament amid mounting speculation that she will announce her retirement from swimming.

The 23-year-old from Mansfield will make a "major announcement" at a press conference tomorrow.

Mansfield MP Alan Meale has tabled a Parliamentary motion praising Adlington's "outstanding athletic career" and adding that her "success and selfless character led her most admirably to be described then and since as the golden girl of British swimming".
