Tom Daley

The Olympic diving bronze medallist and former world champion, has revealed in a YouTube video that he’s now dating a man. Daley, 19, posted a link to the video to his 2.4 million Twitter followers, with the message.

This has been a hard decision to make, but I wanted you to hear this from me.

In the five-minute video clip, which he published Monday, Daley says:

“I’ve been dating girls and I’ve never really had a serious relationship to talk about and now I feel ready to talk about my relationships. 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. And, well, that someone is a guy.”
