Daley, a 27-year-old diver has a page dedicated for knitting and crochet pieces and had also made a pink cardigan for Malaysian diver Cheong Jun Hoong in May this year.

“I made my dear friend Cheong Jun Hoong a cardigan,” he said.

The Olympic gold medallist even knitted a pouch for his gold medal and confessed that learning to knit and crochet has helped him throughout the years, even in bagging the gold medal.
