The Olympian took a selfie with the Ballad of the Mighty I singer and accidentally named his estranged brother Liam on Twitter.

The pair bumped into each other at U2's Twickenham stadium gig over the weekend, where the Ballad Of The Mighty I singer supported the Irish band.
However, taking to Twitter to post their Instagram selfie, the long distance runner wrote: "Chilling with my boy liamgallagher U2 concert in Twickenham..!!"
Never one to miss the chance for some craic, Liam fired back a hilarious response at the long distance runner, writing: "Good to see u2 mo as you were LG x"

Luckily Mo didn't make the same error on his Instagram post, which included Noel's handle @themightyi.
The six time European Champion probably wouldn't have made the error on Twitter, had he known what Liam had to say about U2 and his brother last week.
Responding to a fan who asked him if he'd be watching the One band, the outspoken rocker said he'd "rather eat shit" than watch Bono and co.
The Wall Of Glass singer then upped the ante, calling his brother a "beige boy".
Nothing worse than being blanked by the naffest fans in the world as you were beige boy LFUKING x— Liam Gallagher (@liamgallagher) July 10, 2017
Liam was also keen to accuse Noel of once calling the band "corporate muck", adding: "Corporate muck rkid yousde to call U2 funny eh how many special people change as you were LG x"

His comments are no doubt a reaction to his brother's sly dig at at his turn of phrase, where he wrote a social post ahead of his show, signing out: "AS YOU WEREN'T".
We are pretty much ready. The tunes have been given a good polish. Everyone has been reacquainted. We have new members! We are very much looking forward to seeing old friends and maybe making some new ones but what we are most excited about is sampling the delights of The U2 Catering Experience... widely regarded as THE MOST superior catering experience anywhere in the music business..see you out front. AS YOU WEREN'T..KISS-KISS.. NG
Noel Gallagher paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester and London terror attacks, and those affected by the Grenfell fire on the Saturday, by returning to the stage to play Don't Look Back In Anger with the Irish band.
Watch the moving moment here:
His brother Liam previously performed the track for the first time ever at Glastonbury festival 2017, where he led the crowd at The Other stage in singing the track.
See our footage below:
U2 played the last of their two London shows on Sunday (9 July), performing their The Joshua Tree album in full.
Watch them play the album's stirring opening track, Where The Streets Have Name:
The Dublin rockers ended their night with Acthung Baby ballad, One, with Bono asking for all the lights to be turned off as a sea of phones lit up the stadium.
