Bravo. Thank you for doing this Tom Daley. Wish we had a role model like you when we were your age. Not only is it good for the younger generation to look up to, but for older people to see that “nice young man” isn’t straight and there’s nothing wrong with it. This took balls, and hopefully paves the way for the rest of LGB professional sports people to be brave enough to come out.
And for all the snide,”no shit Sherlock” comments; remember he’s just a young lad. Coming out is intensely personal experience. Remember how difficult it was for you? Now imagine having to do that in front of the nation at 19. Stop being bitter old queens!
Wish Tom, and his boyfriend, all the best, and let’s kick ass at Rio 2016!
I was going to write a post saying these exact things!
