Olympic medalist Tom Daley said he was nervous of the reaction from the public on the news that he is dating a man, but that his family have been incredibly supportive, and that he knows his father would be happy for him.
Daley's father passed away in 2011, just a year before he won bronze at the London 2012 Olympics. He said:
"Dad would have said to me, as long as you are happy, I am happy and right now I could not be happier. My mum has been so supportive."
In an online video posted by Olympic medalist Tom Daley, he described how he is constantly asked about his love life in interviews, but that he was not in any kind of serious relationship until Spring, when he met his boyfriend and his life changed.
He said his closest family and friends have reacted in a loving and supportive way, but that he was nervous about a possible backlash from some people.
