American swimming great Michael Phelps will reportedly swim with sharks along with South African swimmer Chad le Clos.

According to Sport24, Phelps will be in Barcelona to represent his sponsors and be honoured by swimming governing body FINA and will go shark-cage diving with Le Clos in South Africa when the world championships ends.

Stating that he is very scared of sharks, Le Clos said that the retired American swimmer had convinced him to swim alongside him with the sharks after the South African beat his idol Phelps in the 200-metre butterfly at the London Olympics a year ago.
