OLYMPIC diver Tom Daley has been hit with fresh anguish after intimate photographs of him naked in bed were leaked online, less than a year after confessing to having an online tryst.
The selfies, taken while the Olympic athlete was involved in the secret relationship in 2016, include him posing naked in his bedroom.
Another of the images show the 23-year-old gazing at the camera, with his Olympic ring on his finger.
But a close friend spoke out about the photographs, telling the Sun Online: “The pictures are old. From 2016, way before Tom and Lance were married.
“They are from a time where they split for a few months, which they have both talked about previously, but they reunited.”
The athlete tied the knot with husband Dustin Lance Black, last year.
The wedding went ahead despite the fact that diving ace Tom had been caught out over romps with other men during a seven-month break from his then boyfriend.
Tom, who also admitted to having online romps with fans, vowed that the scandal would never be repeated.
He said: “This will absolutely never happen again now that we’re getting married.
“Lance and I had time apart then came back together, realising we’re meant for each other. We’re soulmates.”
It is understood that lawyers have since become involved in the latest leak, demanding that the photographs be taken down from websites sharing them.
