, the British diver who won the bronze medal at the London Olympics last year, has just confirmed that he's happily dating a man. The athlete came out in a YouTube video Monday after he says he was misquoted as "not gay" in a Daily Mail
Daley addressed his personal life in the video and said that he started dating a man a few months back. He said, "come spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe ... That someone is a guy."
But that doesn't necessarily mean he's gay. "Of course I still fancy girls, but right now, I'm dating a guy, and I couldn't be happier," he said. "I feel safe. It really does feel right," he added.
Daley did not reveal the name of his boyfriend in the video.
