Tom Daley puts on a stylish display in a cream cotton sweater vest which he knitted himself


He had a successful Tokyo 2020 Olympics bringing back a bronze medal for the 10m platform dive and a gold medal for his synchronised dive with partner Matty Lee.

And Tom Daley looked stylish in a slew of snaps which he shared to Instagram on Monday after gaining an army of new fans for his knitting antics poolside at the Olympics.

The champion diver, 27, displayed his laid back fashion sense in a cream cotton sweater vest which he knitted himself.

The athlete posed under a road sign which read ‘commit no nuisance’.

He paired his new creation with brown combat trousers and cream high top trainers. 

He captioned the post: ‘I KNIT NO NUISANCE! I made this little thing at the start of the Olympics, when we were travelling to Tokyo! 

‘It’s cotton, nice and light and I’m kind of here for the summer vibes! @weareknitters cotton.’

Tom gained some new fans after he was spotted knitting at the delayed games, and was seen crafting a Team GB cardigan poolside as he attended the men’s 3m springboard diving final. 

Speaking about why he knitted the impressive garment, gold medallist Tom posted on his Made With Love knitting page, wrote: ‘When I got to Tokyo, I wanted to make something that would remind me of the Olympics to look back on in the future.

‘I designed a pattern for the colour work that would signify everything about these games!

‘On the back I went for a classic @teamgb logo, the shoulders have a flag and GBR on them. For the front I wanted to keep it simple and I tried my best to embroider TOKYO in Japanese! What do you think?!’ he wrote.

He said: ‘Since my knitting page is gaining momentum, I wanted to take the opportunity to try and raise some money for the @thebraintumourcharity in memory of my Dad! Any donations would be greatly appreciated.’

Putting his skills to full use, Tom has also knitted an emotional keepsake to forever remind him of his first gold medal at Tokyo 2020 – a customised gold medal pouch.

The British sportsman broke down in tears as he and diving partner Matty Lee triumphed in the 10m synchronized platform event – his first gold medal in four Olympic games.

Tom has previously spoken about the cathartic effect knitting has on his mindset during competitions.

He said: ‘When we went to Japan for the test event I actually took my knitting with me and was doing it during my competition because sometimes there’s 45 minutes in between each dive so I’d sit there and knit and just take my mind off the competition completely. I’m obsessed!’

Tom also took to Instagram on Monday to share some pictures from his celebrations since he came home to London. 

He captioned the series of snaps: ‘WEEKEND CELEBRATIONS PHOTO DUMP!’
