We caught up with Olympic poster boy Tom Daley at the launch of his new diving academy last week.

With the camera rolling, Olympic bronze-medallist Tom was happy talking about everything from fame and his new life in Stratford to spending his most of his time “half naked”, wearing “skimpy little trunks”.

The Tom Daley Diving Academy will offer members of the public the chance to train in the Olympic sport from as little as £4.50 a session at pools managed by leisure operators GLL, known as Better, including at the academy’s base: the London Aquatics Centre.
