      “…he left his phone unattended and the message was sent by someone else.”

      Wow, surprised that is the first time anyone has used that excused after getting caught sending an offensive tweet.

      @Spike: Ha ha!
      Surprised he didn’t go for the Bigger Lie strategy and say his dog sent it.

      Shocking. An ignorant footballer! That is a terrible thing for a person to tweet. What the hell is wrong with this world?

      Just awful, i read this morning that the teen who sent the tweet implying that daleys dead father would be ashamed was arrested. So at least this might make some other dumb people think twice before sending tweets like that.

      @i wont grow up

      Tom Daley will come out when he wants to. Hes 18 for christ sake, stop pushing him out the closet. Peter Waterfield is straight btw.

      @I won’t grow up: Whoops ignore my last reply, i thought you were talking about tom and peter. Dan Thomas is definitely most likely a huge closet case!

      @jj: Tom Daley’s troll was arrested over violent racist and death threat tweets – bit more serious than the tabloids and you suggest…

      Mocking someone whose at the top of their game while you play saturday football in the WPL. Try again, you knuckle-dragging piece of shit.

      Agreed Ewan, Port Talbot isn’t even a decent WPL club. Daley is a success story who works hard and is clearly adept at what he does. If this bigot was talented he’d be playing in good echelons in the EPL and Championship.

      The green eyed monster, a [possibly] gay athlete acquiring worldwide acclaim whereas this is the first time 5 billion have even heard of a place called Port Talbot.

      @nineinchnail: And in which of the oh-so reliable tabloids did you read that Tom has a girlfriend?
      The Sun?
      The Daily Mail?
      He hasn’t said he has…

      Hey, how did the Welsh footballer know that Tom and his lover Peter are the HIV positive lovers? I suppose he (a football player) must have made up the story. I suppose that the Olympic requires all atheletes whether they are the summer/winter players being required to take an HIV test, right? I guess a football player seemed to be jealous of Tom or maybe he (a football player) is gay as he has had a big crush on Tom, but Tom has a lover named Peter which has made him (a football player) very jealous. I am sure that Tom really doesn’t need the drama (or soap opera) comments, so please leave him alone. If a football player wanted Tom to respect who he is, Tom expects a football player to respect who Tom is, that is it! PLEASE LEAVE HIM ALONE. MAYBE ONE DAY HE CAN COMMITT SUICIDE HIMSELF IF THE DRAMA COMMENTS CONTINUALLY WERE FLEW INTO THE AIR! I want to see him to have his happy life for the rest of his life. PLEASE LEAVE HIM ALONE. Yes, I must admit that I already fell in love with and wanted to spend with him, but I can’t do anyway. There is nothing I can do about it since I have a boyfriend and Tom has his boyfriend.

      If a person is so obsessed with other folks winning that they threaten them if they don’t, then that person needs to go out and get some hobbies (and a life) of their own.

      @nineinchnail:And I was married for 7+ years and your point is? Just because someone has a girlfriend doesn’t make them straight.

      Should be banned from any public sport for ever and do a serious number of community service, the least to say.
      Twitter+Football=brain? How can that be possible?

      @Christopher:
      Really you mean an HIV person can not compete? Are the Olympics run by the Republican GOP party or what? As long its not a contact sport who cares. I know and see very healthy acting individuals at the beach here in Canada who easy could compete in some sport. I don’t know but IF HIV+ is banned maybe its time to make a new section for this community and step it up to give them their place.

      The article could have gotten it right that Tom Daley is a diver and not a swimmer.

      @Sed: It’s Kassidy Cook – but the rumour that they’re a couple seems to have come from Tonya Couch, who specifically said “they’re not girlfriend-boyfriend, but they are a cute couple”.
      She’s coming to London specifically to see Tom, apparently, so who knows…

      I’ll say it’s wrong despite my opinion on homosexuality, but where is queerty when Gays and their supporters say hate towards Christians and others who aren’t a part of the “agenda”?
