VIDEO: Preview Tom Daley’s new documentary ‘Diving For Gold’

British Olympian Tom Daley has revealed Kylie Minogue was one of the first people to congratulate him after he came out.

Speaking in a teaser clip ahead of Tom Daley: Diving For Gold, the Olympic medallist said: “I’ve had loads of supportive texts and stuff. Kylie was the first to text me.”

Daley, 22, announced he was coming out in a YouTube video in 2013.

Speaking further in his new ITV documentary he added: “It means everything to be engaged to Lance because he has been so supportive of me. I have Lance to thank for so many things. I don’t think I would [still] be diving if I hadn’t met Lance.”

The new documentary follows Daley on a four-year journey from London 2012 until now, and covers the athlete’s sporting, public and personal life.

Tom Daley: Diving For Gold airs Saturday 30th July, 8pm on ITV.
