Tom Daley, the cute 19-year-old British diver who won the bronze medal in the 10-metre platform in the 2012 London Olympics, announced that he's dating a man in a self-made video posted to YouTube.

"In spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great," Daley said. "That someone is a guy."

The BBC reports:

Daley said: "It did take me by surprise a little bit. 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 and I thought 'Okay'.

"And my whole world changed there and then."

He added: "Of course I still fancy girls but right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier."

Classy. Welcome out, Tom!
