British Olympic diver Tom Daley comes out as gay (Video)

Tom-DaleyBritish Olympic diver Tom Daley revealed that he is gay in a video he posted on YouTube Monday morning. The 19-year-old, who won a bronze medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in front of his home nation, spoke about how his life recently changed when he entered into a relationship with another man.

“Come spring, this year, my life changed — massively,” Daley said in the video. “When I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. That someone is a guy.”

Daley admitted that it took him by surprise that he could have romantic feelings for a man, but said he is comfortable with where he is at in his personal life.

“It did take me by surprise a little bit,” he said. “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. … It just really does feel right.”

Daley added that he still “fancies girls” but stressed that he could not be happier in his current relationship.

Looking back at some photo galleries, it appears the rear was the location of the British Gas logo on the suits for the July 2011 FINA World Championship in China. They must have had complaints or decided to make a change, because by the 18th FINA Visa Diving World Cup in London in February, the British Gas logo had moved to a more conventional location on the front of the suits:
