Watch: Tom Daley teaches diving in tiny pants on Ellen

Tom Daley has donned skimpy pants in a bid to help one of Ellen DeGeneres’ reporters learn how to dive.

The World Champion diver appeared on Ellen to teach ‘Average Andy’, an exec on the daytime talk show, how to be an Olympic diver.

Average Andy wasn’t a complete natural to the process – pointing out just how high a 10m Olympic board feels when you’ve got to jump off it.

But Mr Daley was a distraction from learning himself – stripping down to his pants ahead of the dives.

“What are you keeping in there?” asked Andy.

Tom Daley didn’t achieve his dream of Olympic gold this summer, leading some homophobes to blame it on his sexuality.
