TOM Daley has proved he’s not just a skilled diver, but he’s also an impressive knitter too!
The Olympic gold medallist delighted fans by showing off his crafty handiwork – a special Tokyo 2020 cardigan.
Tom, who was spotted knitting poolside at the Games on several occasions, revealed the finished cardi on his Instagram page. The caption read: “When I got to Tokyo, I wanted to make something that would remind me of these games. Something that I could say I had made in Tokyo, during the Olympics!”
The diver said knitting and crocheting helps with his mental health and keeps him calm.
It’s not just clothing Tom was busy making during his time in Tokyo (aside from making diving history, of course). He also created a little pouch for his Olympic gold medal so it doesn’t get scratched!
