Tom Daley: 'Becks Texts Helped Me Win Medal'
Young diver says David Beckham's advice gave him a boost...
The 18-year-old Team GB star counts Becks among his celeb fans - and said how the footballer's advice helped him compose himself after his failure in the synchronised diving event earlier in the games.
"He wanted to wish me well and to say keep your chin up," Tom told The Sun. "David was asking how I've been feeling, giving me advice about what to take out of the synchro.
"He was kind of asking me the right questions, telling me it's not that bad and that I can come back."
And Becks was there in person on Saturday to watch Tom win bronze in the Aquatics Centre - posting on Facebook afterwards: "Was great to catch up with @TomDaleyOfficial after the event last night, so happy for him after the year he's been through."
We told you earlier today how Tom appeared to have set up a "diving date" with Cheryl Cole.
