The fight is believed to have broken out after Peaty slapped Greenbank on the backside and made a comment about his teammate's girlfriend, according to the Sun.

Greenbank is said to have retaliated, leaving Peaty with a bloody face.

A source told paper: "It was absolute carnage. Peaty was being cocky and made a joke at Greenbank’s expense, before touching his backside.

"But his actions touched a real nerve for Greenbank and it got very heated. Peaty was left with a bloody face and needing treatment."

They added: “Those around them persuaded Peaty and Greenbank to shake hands and put the fight behind them.”

Greenbank, 25, is understood to be seeing Olympic gold medallist swimmer Anna Hopkin, who was previously in a relationship with Peaty.

Peaty is now dating Gordon Ramsay’s daughter, Holly.

His spokeswoman declined to comment to the paper over the alleged clash.
