Tom Daley: “I am NOT gay – but I don’t care if you think I am…”

“Olympic diving hunk Tom Daley insists he is NOT gay – and says he doesn’t care if people think he is.

“I think it’s funny when people say I’m gay… I laugh it off,” says Tom, who was voted the world’s ­sexiest man by iconic gay magazine Attitude last week.

“I’m not. But even if I was, I wouldn’t be ashamed. It wouldn’t bother me in the slightest what people thought.

“But I can understand why I have a massive gay following – I spend most of my life half naked in trunks on a diving board showing off my bare chest.

“I often joke I wear more to bed than I do to work. But I’m cool with my gay following. It’s great to have gay fans even though my friends gently take the mick.”

Tom, 19, says he doesn’t think of himself as a pin-up, even though his six pack and trademark skimpy speedos have gained him an army of fans. He reckons he’s too busy concentrating on what matters to him most.” Full story here!
