Olympic champion Liu Xiang, one of the best known athletes in China, announced a new relationship on Saturday, six months after his divorce.

The former 110m hurdle world and Olympic champion showed a picture of two hands enlaced by a red thread in little fingers, which means two people are in love in Chinese culture, in his Sina Weibo, a Chinese equivalent to twitter. He also referred it to Wu Sha, a pole vaulter who is believed to be his date.

Wu, 30, won the pole vault title at Asian Athletics Championships in 2003 and the National Games in 2009.

Liu, who won the 110-meter hurdles at the 2004 Athens Olympics and retired in 2014, ended a nine-month marriage to actress Ge Tian last June.
