JUST hours after revealing he is in a gay relationship, Olympic diving star Tom Daley was reportedly pictured shopping in Bromley.

This happy snap was taken in a River Island store, believed to be the one in Intu Bromley, which was formerly known as The Glades.

On Twitter fans of the diver expressed their disappointment at missing his shopping trip.

‏@mcflieberUK21h tweeted: “So Tom Daley was in Bromley today. What the hell? I could have met him if I didn’t have school.”

And ‏@CiaraListon1318h said: “”Is Tom Daley in Bromley? Omg he is so cute. I respect your sexuality you do whatever your heart says. @TomDaley1994.”

The diving star, who has forged a TV career for himself on ITV show Splash! after his Olympic success, posted a video on YouTube in which he said his life had "changed massively" since he began dating a man earlier this year.

Tom has gained legions of young female fans since bursting on to the sports scene, representing Great Britain at the 2008 Beijing Olympics aged just 14.

He went on to win two golds at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi in 2010, before adding an Olympic bronze medal in the men's 10m platform event at London 2012.

More stupid inaccurate reporting from Fisk. The shopping centre IS known as The Glades is not formally known as. INTU is just a stupid name. Locals will always know it as The Glades. The quicker NS realise this the better. They should represent local opinion

"Tom Daley is gay? What a surprise!"

- Said no-one, anywhere.


Fair play to him though. Bet that's a weight off his shoulders.

More stupid inaccurate comments by an incompetent un-educated fool, The shopping centre IS formally known as INTU Bromley, it's a franchise! It will be known as the Glade's and that is fair enough but get your facts right! And local opinion is not a fact, the public deserve factual information~! it's known as being educated! Go read a book

Is it me or is it a massive coincidence he suddenly comes out just as his new tv show is starting soon ?

Does anyone care who he sleeps with apart from him ? It makes no odds to me.
Why not be known for his sporting achievements than the guy who whos he is going out with ?

Unfortunately another quality sportsman whos sporting achivements will now no doubt be in the shadows of his "celeb career"

I've never known anyone to get upset about what their local shopping center is called! Bit sad really. It is formally known as the Glades - that is factually correct. Whatever you and other's choose to call it is up to you.

"Tom Daley goes Shopping in Bromley after revealing he is in gay relationship." The title seems to imply that gay singles, closet gays and Hetrosexual people are not allowed there. Please can you confirm Bromley is open to everybody?

Inaccurate reporting. Tom is not in a "gay" relationship, he is in a relationship with another man. Being in a same sex relationship does not equal gay. I am a woman in a relationship with a woman, but neither of us are gay because we still fancy men, just like Tom Daley still fancies women. We are in a same sex relationship, or as we like to call it, a relationship.
He didnt label his sexuality and media should not be so presumptuous to do it for him.

Well done to Tom, and im glad hes found someone he loves :)

It's got absolutely nothing to do with anybody else whatever relationship he is in. Why he had to broadcast the fact that he is in a relationship with a man, is beyond me. He wouldn't have broadcasted it, if he was in a relationship with a woman. Why would anybody care either way?

Tom didn't actually say he was gay. He said he has fallen in love with a man. Good luck to him whoever he may be.

The name of the local shopping centre is more important to local people than whom Tom Daley wants to climb into bed with.
