Michael Phelps: Sought after by sports broadcasters for TV presenting role?
Reportedly, sports broadcasters are lining up to hire Michael Phelps.
Recently, the swimmer broke a record by becoming the most-decorated Olympian ever, with 19 medals including 15 golds.
TMZ claims that, a number of networks are now hoping to sign him up for their Olympics 2016 coverage.
A source at NBC Sports, which has the rights to the Olympics through to 2020, said that the broadcaster "would definitely hire Michael", saying: "The man is smoking hot right now."
In the meantime, an ABC insider alleged: "If he would, we would gladly scoop him up to work for us."
