In a further blow to the Australian men's relay swimmers who are facing a panel for their illegal drug use, Olympic swimmer Jade Neilsen has accused James Magnussen and two of his teammates of inappropriate behaviour towards her and a female roommate.

According to the Australian swimmer, she and her roommate at the pre-Olympic camp in England were awoken by late night phone calls, door knocking and disruptive behaviour, which she has attributed to Magnussen, James Roberts and Cameron McEvoy, News.com.au reports.

The six members of Australia's men's 4x100m swim team - Magnussen, Roberts, McEvoy, Matt Targett, Eamon Sullivan and Tommaso D'Orsogna will front the media on Friday afternoon in Sydney, to answer claims of bad behaviour in the lead-up to the London Games, the report added. (ANI)
