Speaking to THEGAYUK before he left the UK for Rio Bosworth said, that if Heathrow had the right ring he’d buy it to make his boyfriend an “honest man!”
Bosworth came 6th in his game – but managed to break a British record in the sport of Race walking.
Speaking about how the pair met Bosworth told THEGAYUK,
“My female friend decided to hit on him. She quite liked the look of him.
“Me and my other friend were sat there trying not to laugh as we quite clearly could see that he perhaps didn’t bat for that team (laughs).
“She got very offended when he said, “You’re not my type.” He was trying to be polite.
“She couldn’t understand why and it was at that point that I walked up to my friend and said, “I think he’s probably more my type, than your type.”
“We got talking from there. The rest is history.”
