NEWS: Olympic Diver Tom Daley comes out

In a world where a celebrity revealing their sexuality  is becoming less of a news story and more of a matter of everyday housekeeping, special mention has to go to diving prodigy and Olympic gold medalist Tom Daley. The 19-year-old tonight ended years of speculation with a 5-minute long YouTube video that saw him emerging from the closet as bisexual in a humbling and graceful manner.

As Daley  put it himself, ‘in a perfect world, I shouldn’t be doing this video because it shouldn’t matter’ – and he’s right. Nonetheless, it can’t be denied what an enormous figure he has been in the public eye recently, and the undercurrent of hope that runs through the message that will now surely be seen by millions.

This one’s sure to cure any Monday blues you may be experiencing.
