Tom Daley causes a stir with a snap of his English breakfast

by MIRIAM FOLEY

Tom Daley caused quite a stir on Sunday morning when he posted a picture of himself cooking breakfast. The Olympic silver medal-winning diver shared a snap of himself whipping up a full English breakfast using a five-segmented pan.

The 21-year-old captioned the photograph: "Sunday morning full English breakfast for the American", in which he may well have been referring to his fiancé, American screenwriter, director and producer, Dustin Lance Black.

The picture showed the pan put to its intended use, with eggs, sausages, bacon and beans all cooking in separate segments. The photo prompted a flood of comments on Instagram and Twitter with users clamouring to buy the pan so they could recreate the cooking experience. By Monday, the snap had received more than 46.5k likes.

Tom often shares a glimpse of his life as an athlete with his fans. On 1 January, he shared a video on YouTube talking about the year ahead, which will see him compete in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

In the short clip, he explained that he trains for "years and years and years" to be "the best that we can be". He also talked about the pressure that goes with training for one chance every four years, "having that in your head and that weight on your shoulders". His ultimate dream, he said, is "to win that gold medal".

The diver revealed his New Year goals and encouraged fans to think of their own. His three resolutions are to stop biting his nails, get even better at managing his time, and to have something to take his mind off diving.
