Tom Daley Appreciates Gay Fans
Tom Daley says he really appreciates his gay fanbase.
The Olympic medalist, who recently named “Sexiest Man” in the poll conducted by the UK’s best-selling gay magazine ‘Attitude’, was “surreal”, but “very cool”.
Asked how he feels about his gay following, Daley told ‘Digital Spy’: “It’s cool, any support I appreciate.
“Everyone’s been so supportive. The voters are the people cheering me on during the Olympics, these are the people that give me extra motivation during training. I really appreciate it.”
He was also asked about his heartthrob status, to which he responded: “I don’t really feel any pressure because I’m training five hours a day, but you do feel like you’re being constantly watched and looked at.”
Daley is still single and says he is “married to his trunks” and will struggle to ever have a romance while he is diving professionally, “I am not the kind of person who thinks a relationship is right for me at the moment. I would rather be single. If someone comes along who understands diving is first, then that could work but until that happens I am going to be single. I am married to my trunks.”
