That headline’s for you, SEO wankers.
Olympic bronze medal-winning diver Tom Daley, often the subject of gay rumo(u)rs and fan fic, denied an interest in men in the Daily Mirror in September, saying, “I think it’s funny when people say I’m gay… I laugh it off.”
But the Brit named World’s Sexiest Man by gay magazine Attitude posted a personal, heartfelt video to YouTube on Monday in which he says he was misquoted by the Mirror, and that he is now in a relationship with a “guy.” Daley said he still fancies girls, but right now his man makes him feel it.
Well said, Tom. This is wonderful news for many Internet lurkers, but it must be an unbelievable weight off Daley’s broad tan shoulders.
Daley tweeted the video at about 10 am GMT:
Got something I need to say…not been an easy decision to make, hope you can support me! http://t.co/oOrDEiChGd

After this pic from the Olympics, we all suspected anyway:
Now the questions will turn to “WHO IS IT? IS IT NIALL?”
Daley said his family had mixed reactions, but he also posted this pic to Instagram on Sunday night with his “supportive mum.”
Go get ‘em, Tom. Have fun out there.
