Fans convinced Olympian is Alex from Glastonbury

TOKYO Olympics 2020 fans are convinced that a Team GB swimmer is in fact Alex Mann from THAT Dave set at Glastonbury Festival 2019. 

You might recognise him from that iconic performance of Thiago Silva, but now fans of ‘Alex from Glasto’ are adamant that he’s turned into a professional athlete. 

“Is there anything he can’t do?” said one fan who shared a picture of Mann alongside an Olympic swimmer with an uncanny resemblance.  

Despite suggestions that Alex has hung up his rapper coat and thrown on some trunks to compete in the Tokyo Olympic Games, we can confirm that’s not the case.  

The picture is in fact of swimmer Duncan Scott who recently became the first athlete in any sport to ever win four medals at a single Games for Team GB. 

He won gold in the 4x200m freestyle relay, as well as three further silver medals, to take his total medal haul to six having also won two silvers at Rio 2016.  

“I’m very fortunate to be part of some excellent relay teams, this being one of them,” said Scott. 

“Initially, we were very disappointed but since 2015, when we first started coming together, we’ve got back-to-back Olympic silvers in this event and we’d have taken that all day.  

“Looking at the splits, we all swam well. I’m slightly disappointed with mine but it’s been a tough week and we have to be happy with that.” 

Comparing the pair’s likeness, one viewer said: “Alex Mann raps with Dave at Glastonbury and swims to gain Olympic medals. 

“Tell me I am not the only one that thought this, is there anything he can’t do?”  

One viewer joked: “Your hat identification ability is on point today.”
