Olympics 2012: The Scene
What's it like in London during the Games?
Clearly, winning 22 Olympic medals has its perks.

Case in point: Michael Phelps brand-new ad for Louis Vuitton, in which he strips down to a Speedo and eyes the camera while sitting in a bathtub.

The ad was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, who in her decades-plus career has photographed everyone from John Lennon to The Rolling Stones.

Phelps, 25, is coming off an incredible run at the 2012 London Olympics, where he added a staggering six medals to his collection (four gold, two silver) to become the most-decorated Olympian of all time.


While in London, Phelps also went public with his girlfriend, actress-model Megan Rossee, whom he’s reportedly been dating since January.

During the Games, there were also reports that Phelps — who had planned to retire after London — is being recruited by NBC Sports to become an on-air commentator.
