British diver Tom Daley

Tom Daley, a British diver who won bronze at the London Olympic Games in 2012, has become the latest athlete to publicly declare his sexual orientation.

In a YouTube video designed to end "rumors and speculation," Daley announced that he is indeed gay. "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," said Daley. "Of course I still fancy girls but right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier."
