Wally Lewis is still going strong with his glamorous new girlfriend Lynda Adams, two years after confirming his divorce from wife-of-36-years Jacqueline.
The rugby league legend, 63, was spotted cosying up to Ms Adams, a miscarriage support group volunteer, during a romantic night out in Brisbane on Saturday.
The couple, whose romance was revealed shortly after Lewis announced his divorce, looked absolutely smitten as the footy star wrapped an arm around the mother of one’s shoulder.
Lewis took the time to show Ms Adams something on his phone as they waited in line at a restaurant.
The high-profile sports presenter was hard to miss in his Nine Network polo shirt, while Ms Adams dressed to impress in a linen shirt and khaki pants.

Lewis, who was known as ‘The King’ during his footballing days, rocked the sporting world in February 2021 when he confirmed his separation from his wife and the mother of his three children.
‘This is a deeply personal matter that we do not want to discuss publicly,’ he said.
‘I want to acknowledge the pain and upset my family has gone through since Jacqui and I separated last year. I hope over time we can rebuild our ties and move on with life.’

It later emerged he was in a new relationship with Ms Adams, a volunteer at Sands Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Newborn Death Support Group in Townsville.
Ms Adams was recently separated from her husband, property developer Mark Adams, when she met Lewis.
Reports at the time claimed Lewis’ new relationship had turned the rugby league immortal’s three children against him.

Sources told The Daily Telegraph Lewis’ adult children, Mitchell, Jamie-Lee and Lincoln, felt obliged to side with their distraught mother and were no longer speaking to their dad.
‘Lincoln and his mum have always been very tight… he’s very much his mother’s boy,’ a friend told the newspaper.
Lincoln, a former Home and Away star and Logie winner, reportedly had his mother to thank for supporting his acting career.
‘She was the one who really encouraged him to pursue acting and always took a much bigger [parenting] role in his life,’ the friend said.
‘He has always been open about that with people close to him. He has been known to say that he was raised by his mother,’ they added.
