In an emotional YouTube video, British Olympic diver Tom Daley has revealed he’s in a relationship with a man.
Truth about sexuality
The 19-year-old athlete says in the video, “Come spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy… And that someone is a guy.”
Still, Daley didn’t use the terms “gay” or “bisexual.”
Daley concludes the frank, five-minute video, saying, “I’m still Tom. I still want to win an Olympic gold medal at Rio 2016 for Great Britain.”
He posted the clip on his Twitter page, which received more than a half-million views in its first few hours online. Daley said he opted to use YouTube as his way to reveal it because he wanted his statements to come out clearly.
His sexuality had been the subject of rumors for some time, which he just laughed off in an interview earlier this year.
Despite his big revelation, Daley continues to receive support from his loyal fans.
