A simultaneous fit to transit photometry and radial-velocity measurements yields a planetary mass of 1.02±0.03M{Jup} and radius of 1.32±0.08R{Jup}. The host star, WASP-26, has a mass of 1.12±0.03 and a radius of 1.34±0.06 and is in a visual double with a fainter K-type star. The two stars are at least a common-proper motion pair with a common distance of around 250±15pc and an age of 6±2Gy. Description: File table1 contains the Radial velocity and line bisector span measurements of WASP-26 obtained using the CORALIE spectrograph. Files fts.dat and ftn.dat contain the Pan-STARRS-z band transit photometry obtained using the Faulkes Telescopes observed on 2009 November 18 and 2009 December 2, respectively.
