Tom Daley has been trying out some new swimwear, and luckily for his fans, he’s sharing the photographic proof!
The first pic in his post is a selfie in a wetsuit, but it’s the second pic showing him filling out a tight, red speedo that’s raising eyebrows.
“Quads are popping,” wrote Daley’s Olympic diving partner Matty Lee in the comments section, probably echoing the thoughts of many of his followers.
The elite diver revealed he’s in training for a four-day trek rowing, cycling, running, and swimming event from London to Plymouth. Daley said the effort is for a good cause, raising money as part of the Hell of a Homecoming for Red Nose Day campaign for the Comic Relief charity organization.
“I’ve never done anything like this before,” Daley says in a recent promo video. “I mean, I’ve trained for the Olympics, but I’ve never done any kind of endurance training, let alone swimming in that freezing water. Let me tell you, it’s cold.”
Daley won the gold medal for Team Great Britain last year in the men's synchronized swimming 10m platform event, besting the defending champions Cao Yuan and Chen Aisen representing China by little more than a single point. It was the first time divers from China did not take first place since 2000. It was an emotional win, and Daley could be seen shedding tears on the victory podium.
“I still can't honestly believe what is happening,” Daley said at the time. “That moment, being about to be announced as Olympic champions, I was gone. I was blubbering.”
