The 19-year-old diver from the United Kingdom who twisted and turned his muscular body in nothing but a Speedo took home a bronze medal at the London Olympics — as well as rabid fans (us included) from all over the globe. Today, the gorgeous Tom Daley, who seduced the world with his post-dive shower scenes adorable smile, washboard abs, powerful pre-dive handstands, and all-around gorgeous face, shared with his fans today via an emotional YouTube video that he's currently in a relationship with a man. "In an ideal world, I wouldn't be doing this video, because it shouldn't matter," he prefaces, to share, "Come spring, this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great. And well, that someone is a guy. And it did take me by surprise a little bit. I mean, it was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn't until spring this year that something just clicked. It felt right." Congratulations, Tom! Fall deeper under his spell by watching his video below — and, of course, by zooming into those precious, gratuitous diving pics.
