Tom Daley’s Grandparents Confused at Gay Relationship
Tom Daley’s grandparents have expressed their confusion and surprise at being told that the Olympic diver is in a relationship with a man.
Despite claiming that their teen grandson is “too young” to be making a decision about his sexuality, David and Rosemary Daley have insisted that they will support him.
“We are confused because he’s always had girlfriends”, Mrs Daley says. “We asked him if he was absolutely sure. He’s our first grandson from our son who died.”
“We have always been supportive of him and we always will. We’re not old-fashioned, in fact we’re quite liberal, but I do think he’s too young to be making this sort of decision.
“But we hugged him, we thanked him for coming to see us, and we’ll be seeing him over Christmas. We’ll always be here for Tom.”
The young sportsman took to his Twitter page last night to thank his fans for their support telling them that he was “Overwhelmed by all the support! Means the world! Thanks so much guys”.
He added this morning: “I’d just like to say again a massive thanks for all the support yesterday…it truly was overwhelming xx”
