This has been a hard decision to make, but I wanted you to hear this from me. Tom Daley, the 19-year-old British diving star who won a bronze medal at last summer’s Olympics revealed that he is currently in a relationship with a man.
Tom said ‘I still fancy girls.. Come spring, this year, my life changed. Massively. When I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. That someone is a guy. And it did take me by surprise a little bit.
It was always in the back of my head that it could happen, but it wasn’t until the spring of this year that something clicked. It felt right. Like I said, my whole world just changed right there and then. My father always said as long as you are happy, I’m happy.
I’m still Tom. I still want to win an Olympic gold medal in Rio 2016 for Great Britain. I’m still motivated as ever to do that. I think people are going to make a big deal of this. I mean, is it a big deal? I don’t think so.’
