Tom Daley named Attitude’s Man of the Year

2014-10-13
250_Awards TOMTom Daley has been named Man of the Year, supported by Sky, at the Attitude Awards 2014. The 20-year-old diver, who came out in an emotional YouTube video in December 2013, won gold in the men’s 10m platform event at the Commonwealth Games in August. With Australian diver Matthew Mitcham winning silver in the same event, it marked the first time that two openly gay athletes had shared the top two medals at an international sports event. Accepting the award, Daley said: "It's a real honour to be named Man of the Year 2014 by Attitude magazine. It’s been a good year and to be given this award means a lot." As well as tonight’s award, the Olympic medal-winning athlete also topped the annual Attitude HOT 100 list for a second year running back in July - find out more here. Daley was presented with the Man of the Year prize by Jonathan Ross at the tonight’s star-studded awards ceremony at Banqueting House in Whitehall, London, which is being hosted by Scissor Sisters star Ana Matronic. Daley has also posed for the latest Attitude – the Awards Issue – and is one of nine special collectible covers. Take a look below. 250_Awards TOM
