London, Sep 3 (IANS) British TV actor Benedict Cumberbatch has played down reports that he is dating Katia Elizarova.

“We’re just old friends. I can’t say any more than that,” quoted the 36 -year-old as saying.

Cumberbatch, known for playing iconic detective Sherlock Holmes in TV series “Sherlock”, has been seen spending time with 26-year-old Elizarova, who has modelled for Chanel and Versace. Most recently they attended supermodel Natalia Vodianova’s charity launch together in London.

He suggests that she’s helping him brush up on his language skills: “Russian is a wonderful language. I’d love to be able to master it.”

Cumberbatch split from his girlfriend of 10 years Olivia Poulet last year and subsequently dated fashion designer Anna Jones.
