(From the top) Tom losing his Speedo in the water after a dive last night; Tom’s reaction to losing his Speedo in the water last night; A look back at the best of Tom in his Speedos; And the hateful tweet Tom received after placing fourth. (Tom’s father, you may recall, died of brain cancer last year.) People are horrid, aren’t they?
Also, if you still haven’t satiated your Tom-lust, the Daily Mail has a great article about his often overlooked diving partner, that, funnily enough, mostly ignores the partner and instead gushes over Tom. “Tom Daly,” it begins. “Look at him. Glistening, as Boris Johnson might say, like a wet boy otter. Like a whelp. Like a leaping porpoise of passion as he flies through the air with the greatest of ease, that daring young man with the freshly waxed knees.” Now THAT is some purple prose. God Bless Britannia.
