Tom Daley knits a cosy for his gold medal and says knitting has helped Olympic stress
Tom Daley is keeping up with another sport at the Olympics and has knitted a personalised cosy for his gold medal.
The world class diver won the men’s synchronised 10m platform in a stunning performance, with partner Matty Lee, on Monday.
The GB athlete, who is appearing in his fourth Olympic Games, revealed how his passion for knitting had helped to keep him on track.
“The one thing that has kept me sane throughout this whole process is my love for knitting and crochet and all things stitching.
“This morning I made a little cosy for my medal to stop it getting scratched so here it is.”
“I’ve got the Union Jack on one side and the Japanese flag on the other and it all tucks in nicely for me to have a little pouch for me to carry around my medal,” he added.
Daley began knitting during the pandemic last year and says he has been “obsessed every since.”
