Diving champ and Olympic hottie Tom Daley has once again stolen our hearts by knitting in the stands while watching the diving at the Tokyo games.

The photo was shared by the official Olympics Twitter account on Sunday and it has already amassed over 24k likes. I mean just look at him…

Earlier this week, the Olympic champ added another shiny boy to his already hefty tally -winning gold in the 10m synchronised platform event with partner Matty Lee.

Daley won bronze in the 10m platform at London 2012, and another bronze in the 10m synchronised platform alongside Dan Goodfellow in 2016.

Not only is Daley a champion diver, but he’s also a champion knitter. He even has an Instagram page dedicated to the passion.

OMG he even made a little Union Jack pouch for his gold medal. I can’t deal.


A couple of keen fans even knitted their own postbox topper of Tom Daley… knitting. You can have a peep at the creation here.

Tom Daley will go for gold again in the individual 10m platform competition later in the week.
