America's most decorated Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps is pretty impressed with his son Boomer's skills inside the pool.

During a recent appearance on US TV show Access Live with Natalie Morales, Kit Hoover and Scott Evans, the 23-time Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer spoke about the experience of being dad to Boomer, two and seven-month-old Beckett, with wife Nicole.

"He [Boomer] always wants to be in the pool… his kick is absolutely insane. He's got the shoulder flexibility like dad does, so we'll see," said Phelps.

Phelps added he is waiting for the day when his son asks him: 'Dad, when are you going to swim again and compete again?' "So, I'm waiting and I'm preparing myself for that question," he said.
