Oh, it's that guy.

I didn't care at first, but I've seen a thread dedicated to him on /hm/, so this actually interests me.

Hmm...

Speaking in depth for the first time of his “terrifying” decision to come out, the bronze medal winner said: “He saved me from not wanting to dive anymore.

"After the Olympics I was down in the dumps, as it’s such a hard way to get back into everything, but he gave me the extra motivation and made me work harder and that is exactly what I need."

The Olympic diving hero was greeted with deafening cheers and a standing ovation as he walked on to the set to film Saturday night’s The Jonathan Ross Show.

Referring to his new boyfriend Tom said: “It was love at first sight.

"I’ve never felt anything like it – and I made the first move.”

And the London 2012 bronze medallist said people would only now see the “true Tom” after he came out in a YouTube video earlier this week.

He told the chat-show host: “It felt like it was my dirty little secret, like I had chains round me and I couldn’t say anything and I couldn’t be who I wanted to be. I felt so alone and trapped in who I was.”

The sports star first broke his news to best friend Sophie Lee and said it gave him a huge lift. “Just telling one person took such a weight off my shoulders.”

He then told family and friends at his birthday party in May. “They are all so supportive of me... but to have all the support from the public as well has just been a bonus and, honestly, it makes me smile just thinking about it.”

Although he did not name his boyfriend, it has been widely reported to be Oscar-winning screenwriter Black.

After the news broke, the writer joked on Twitter: “Slept all day today after my trip to Russia. Did I miss anything?”
