Plymouth's Olympic diving medallist Tom Daley has come out over his sexuality.

The teenager has revealed on Youtube that he's "dating a guy" but still likes girls.

In the short film he talks about losing his dad, winning an olympic medal, studying for exams and trying to keep a private life.

The 19 year old says his mum has given him her unconditional support.

A string of celebrities have backed his announcement. Kylie has described him as "inspiring and brave" while Penzance's Helen Glover told him: "good for you Tom, really well said x"

Stephen Fry tweeted: "I opened the second door on my advent calendar and Tom Daley came out. Seriously @TomDaley1994 congratulations. So happy for you."

The teenager has tweeted: "Overwhelmed by all the support! Means the world! Thanks so much guys."
