He first posted a picture with Clayton in the garden of his house, located in the luxury area of La Finca in the Spanish capital Madrid.


He accompanied it with the message: "Working on my speed with the athlete and expert in fitness Samantha Clayton".


British athlete Clayton, who competed in the 2000 Sydney Games, is also a social media star with almost 68,000 followers.
