Tom Daley: My life changed when I met boyfriend

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.

Come Spring this year, my life changed, massively, and they made me feel so safe and really happy and everything just feels great, and that someone is a guy.

And it did take me by surprise a bit, it was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it was not until Spring this year, something just clicked.

Of course I still fancy girls, but right now, I am dating a guy and I could not be happier.

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.
