Swimming legend Michael Phelps, winner of most medals in Olympic history, would not be drawn on Wednesday on whether he may come out of retirement for the 2016 Rio Games.
Dubbing the issue the “million-dollar question,” the 28-year-old, winner of 18 gold, two silver and two bronze medals, was visiting Brazil to shoot a commercial with football legend Pele but dodged making any commitment on a possible return to the Olympic arena.
“I don’t know what’s gonna happen in three years. I don’t even know what is gonna happen tomorrow,” said Phelps when pressed on a possible return to top competition.
It’s “the million-dollar question,” he laughed.
