He’s one of the top diving talents in the world and Tom Daley just so happens to be bisexual, per his latest YouTube video.

The 19-year-old Olympic athlete confessed that he’s been dating a man since this past spring, though he still loves ladies too.

Tom explained, “Come spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great. And that someone is a guy.”

“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, like I said, and my whole world changed there and then.”

“Of course I still fancy girls, but right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier. I just feel safe and it just really does feel right. People are going to have various opinions and people are going to make a big deal of this. Is it a big deal? I don’t think so.”

Daley added, “In an ideal world I wouldn’t be doing this video, because it shouldn’t matter. But recently I was misquoted in an interview and it made me feel really angry and frustrated – emotions that I’ve never felt before when reading something about myself. For me, honesty is something that I really do believe in, and I’ve always been honest. I may have been vague in some of my answers but I’ve always been honest.”
