Cape Town - South African swimming sensation, Chad le Clos, will leave his hometown of Durban to relocate to Cape Town.

Le Clos, a winner of four Olympic medals, including gold in the 200m butterfly at the 2012 Olympic Games, announced his move on Twitter.

"Delighted to announce that I am moving to Cape Town in January. Looking fwd to training at the JanVanRiebeckSchool pool CleC"

In September, the swimmer parted ways with coach, Graham Hill.

"Graham Hill has done a great job as my coach for 14 years. We have achieved a lot together at every level of the sport: The Olympics, the World Championships, the Commonwealth Games and the FINA World Cups," Le Clos said.

"However, having considered everything, I have decided to end our agreement and will now start looking to find a new structure for 2017," said Le Clos at the time.
