Filippo Magnini: Italian Olympic swimming star saves drowning newly-wed

Italian Filippo Magnini rescued Andrea Benedetto who was drowning off a Sardinian beach on Sunday.

The former world champion plunged in after friends of the man shouted to sunbathers on Cala Sinzias beach, just east of Cagliari.

Magnini kept Mr Benedetto's head above water until lifeguards arrived with a raft.

"I just did what I had to," the retired sportsman said later.

Only two days before, Mr Benedetto, 45, had married his boyfriend at a ceremony in Cagliari.

Olympic swimmer races six months pregnant

Such is the case with American swimmer Dana Vollmer, who claimed her seventh Olympic medal in Rio last year.

But she has had to adapt her preparation for Tokyo to cater for, in her words, the "bowling ball" in her stomach.

In her first race since Rio on Thursday, Vollmer was six months pregnant.

The first obstacle was finding a swimming costume that worked for her - up from the size 26 she wore in Rio to a size 32 at Thursday's race in Mesa, Arizona.
