Before their trip to Spain, Simpson and McKeon had not been seen together since they walked the red carpet at the Elvis premiere on the Gold Coast on June 4.

There were rumours the pair had quietly called it quits, but friends denied any suggestion their romance was on the rocks.

Reps for both Simpson and McKeon declined to comment but a swimming insider, who asked not to be named, said he would be ‘surprised’ if the couple was ‘done’.

‘As far as I know they’re still on. But you hear people trying to stir up trouble in swimming circles all the time,’ he said.

‘People like to start rumours. In saying that, people do break up too.’

The pair are said to have first hit it off several months ago as training partners under gun coach Michael Bohl.

Simpson is hoping to turn his Olympic dream into a reality in Paris in 2024 while McKeon, who made history in Tokyo 2021 with a seven-medal haul, is looking to back up her record-breaking performance.

The pair found themselves in the middle of a reputed ‘love triangle’ during the Australian Championships in Adelaide, with reports claiming Kyle Chalmers deliberately bumped Simpson out of World Championship eligibility in the 100m butterfly by opting to contest the event.

However, Chalmers, who dated McKeon for several months in 2021,later disputed this, saying he had always planned to compete in that event.
