Gold medal winner Florent Manadou and word record holder Frédérick Bousquet have posed for a campaign called ‘imaginary couples’ which was started by photographer Olivier Ciappa.

In real life, Bousquet is in a relationship with Manadou’s sister Laure.

Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria and Belgian-Italian singer Lara Fabian have also posed as a couple for the campaign.
