Awww, what a cutie

Rebecca Adlington might be living it up in the Rio Olympic Games, but there’s still one downside to one of the best presenting jobs in the business: being away from her daughter.

The Olympic medallist shared a video of her daughter Summer, who’s currently in the UK with her ex-husband Harry Needs. The clip shows Rebecca commentating at the Olympics while her INCREDIBLY CUTE daughter points to the screen and tries to touch her.

Honestly, grab some tissues, because it’s too much.

The star captioned the post: ‘This. #missyou #3moresleeps #crying’ adding in some heart emojis for good measure.

This ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #missyou #3moresleeps #crying

The best thing about the video is the massive smile on Summer’s face – that’s it, we can’t stop crying now.

But after a big week presenting the swimming, Becky is heading back home to her adorable daughter.

Before leaving, though, she paid tribute to her fellow BBC presenter Helen Skelton, who has been at the centre of a sexism storm since throughout the entire games.

Posting a snap of the pair at the aquatic centre, the star wrote: ‘This week has simply been amazing to watch and see the British Swimmers doing so well. But I want to say a massive thank you to this very special lady @helenskelton

‘It was my first time covering the Olympics with the BBC and I have learnt so much from Helen. She is such a joy to work with, knows her stuff, so passionate and simply a lovely person #Olympics.’

Awww, Rebecca Adlington, it seems being really sweet just runs in your family!
