MANSFIELD swimming sensation Becky Adlington is set to make a major announcement at a press conference on Tuesday.

The double Olympic gold medalist has hinted at retirement in recent months despite winning two bronze medals at London 2012, following her double gold in Beijing in 2008.

The 23-year-old swimmer claimed two of only three medals won by Great Britain in London, when British Swimming had a target of five.

She has recently criticised the governing body British Swimming over their review of the team’s below-par performance at London 2012.
