Phelps shows off his socks appeal

Christmas socks may not have been the focus of many people's attention when they looked at Michael Phelps's recent Christmas Instagram photo.But they were one of the few items of clothing on the Olympic medal winner's body.

The world record breaking swimmer, with more Olympic golds than anyone else, posted a photo of himself looking muscular in a pair of bikini briefs along with green, blue, red and black striped festive socks.

The photo of him along with girlfriend Nicole Johnson and two friends posing in front of a Christmas tree was captioned " 'Yep.... I forgot my pjs for the pjs party.... Oops #gfore #aquasphere."

Everyone else in the picture wore pyjamas including Miss Johnson, who recently rekindled her relationship with Phelps after a 2012 breakup.
