Watch: Yep, Tom Daley Crocheted *That* for His Diving Partner
Kilian Melloy READ TIME: 3 MIN.
Out Olympic diving champion Tom Daley, who came out of retirement to train for this summer's Olympics in Paris, sat down with diving partner Noah Williams for a video in which the shirtless pair answered questions submitted through OnlyFans and Patreon.... including discussing the cock sock Daley knitted for Williams.
The fan who asked about the specialty item asked the question many of us might be wondering: How did Daley know what size to make it?
After Williams read out the question, which was sent in to his OnlyFans, Daley – who is not on OnlyFans, and whose questions came in via Patreon – admitted, "I did make Noah a cock sock, actually." To Williams, he added, "Because, it was your birthday, I think, wasn't it?"
Daley recalled that it was "his 21st birthday and we were in the middle of Budapest, and I was like, 'What am I going to get him for his birthday?'"
"So I was, like, 'You know what, I've got yarn, I've got a crochet hook, and I'm gonna make a cock sock."
Answer the question, Tom!
The diver did explain how he knew what size to make the gift – and the answer, innocently enough, was that Daley (who also recently gifted "Sex Education" star Gillian Anderson with a phallic work of crochet) works "by the one-size-fits-most rule," so no measurements were taken, it would seem, for a bespoke item.
Williams followed up with the saucy second part of the query: "Are you surprised that I've actually worn it a few times?"
"No, I'm not," Daley said. "I think you actually posted a photo on your OnlyFans of you and your cock sock."
"I sent you [a photo] as well," Williams grinned.
"I mean, it's nice that they're used," Daley went on to add, "because most of the time people use it as, like, a little novel thing that never actually gets used."
More questions followed, including one for Williams that asked, "If you had to spend a night spooning a diver... who would you like to spoon for the night?"
Daley's eyes popped as Williams added, "It doesn't say big or small spoon."
The two seemed flummoxed for answer, with Daley finally saying Williams was the only diver he "could actually spoon... because we shared a room."
"Awww," Williams said, "that's cute. You can spoon me."
Daley then flashed his wedding ring, to indicate that no spooning (much less forking) actually went on between them. "It would have been Matty before," Daley said, referring to his previous diving partner, Matty Lee,"but now it's obviously you, because I'm sharing a room with you."
Williams fielded another suggestive question that asked what his type was, and whether he is Daley's type.
Daley started talking about his husband, Oscar-winning American screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, explaining, "I like broad shoulders..."
Williams sat up straight, his shoulders back, to demonstrate that was a trait he shared with Black.
"I like a swimmer's physique," Daley added, "because that was what drew me to Lance in the first place, the fact that he was so wide at the top and then narrow... and then I also like distinctive features," such as Black's nose.
"I've got a broken nose," Williams offered.
Okay, boys, chill!
The banter aside, Daley seems entirely committed to his family, explaining recently that the reason he decided to come out of retirement was his young son telling him that he wanted to see him compete in the Olympics. If that's not reason to jump back into the punishing regimen of Olympic training, what is?
