The British Olympic diver Tom Daley has revealed he’s in a relationship with a man in a heartfelt YouTube video.

The 19-year-old London 2012 bronze medallist, and heartthrob to girls and guys around the UK and beyond, said:

“In spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great.

“That someone is a guy.”

He never says the word ‘gay,’ and he does say that “of course I still fancy girls,” but “right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier.”

Daley said: “It did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen.

“But it wasn’t until spring this year that something just clicked. It felt right and I thought ‘Okay’.

“And my whole world changed there and then.”

We wish Tom all the best in his relationship, and applaud him for his courage in coming out as such a high profile sportsman at such a young age. We need more role models like this!
