Olympic diver Tom Daley has come out as bisexual, revealing that he is in a relationship with another man.

Daley, 19, said in a video posted Monday to his YouTube channel, that he’s been dating a man since spring, but says he “still fancies girls.”

“Come spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great — and well 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 something like that could happen but it wasn’t until the spring of this year that it clicked. It felt right. My whole world just changed right there and then.

“I still fancy girls but I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier. It just really does feel right.”


Daley won two gold medals for England at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, and won the Bronze medal for Great Britain in the individual competition at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.
