Tom Daley was always a hearthrob to many when he first appeared in the Olympics representing the UK in diving and gave hope to people of all persuasions.

Besides the video he released Tom Daley has won many awards over the years although most have been down to his sporting career. In 2017 he was given an award at the LGBT Awards where he, and his husband Dustin Lance Black, claimed the ‘Independent Influencer Award’.
