Chinese Olympic gold medalist and table tennis player Zhang Jike has finally admitted to being in a relationship with “Pacific Rim Uprising” actress, Jing Tian.

As reported on Epoch Times, on 28 March, the athlete took to Weibo to share a photo of him and a woman walking along the beach while holding each other’s hands.

He captioned it, “K [heart] T”, and tagged Jing Tian on the photo. The actress responded to the photo with “T [heart] K” and tagged him back.

Prior to Jing, Zhang was in a seven-year relationship with a member of his table tennis team. He also previously expressed admiration for actress Xie Na, who is married to singer Jason Zhang.

Rumours of Zhang’s romance with Jing sparked as early as February, when the media published photos of two people – resembling the two celebrities kissing – in a car.
