After 13 years of competing in the Olympics, Tom Daley finally struck gold in the Tokyo Games, meaning he'll be leaving his Olympic career behind on a high this summer.
Daley and his diving partner, Mattty Lee, won gold medals for the Men's 10m Platform Synchronised Dive during week one of the Tokyo Games - an event in which they also set a world record score of 471.81 points overall.
Daley has been diving for more than two decades, but he actually had a phobia of water at one point in his childhood.
He started diving at the age of seven and is a member of the diving club in his birthplace, Plymouth.
Daley has three Olympic medals under his belt: two bronze and now a gold. He's also a three-time European champion and three-time Commonwealth Games champion.
Tom Daley made his Olympic debut in 2008 at the Beijing Summer Games.
He was aged 14 at the time and Britain's youngest Olympic competitor, until Sky Brown became the youngest to compete for Team GB in Tokyo, aged 13.
"I was the youngest on the team and I didn't really know what I was doing. I was all about the experience and just soaking it up," he told the Olympics Podcast.
Born on 21st May 1994, Daley will be 27 when he retires from the Olympics.
We're not sure what's next for Daley after the Tokyo Games.
Speaking to the Olympics Podcast, he said: "I've always said I'll carry on for as long as my body will let me," and that he may be skipping the Paris 2024 Games, but he might not be done with the Olympics for good after all.
Daley caused some controversy with fans when he was spotted knitting a jumper for his dog in the stands as he watched the Women's Diving events.
While some said he was being "disrespectful" to his fellow athletes by not giving his full attention, others loved the fact that he was embracing his hobby and felt free to relax and knit while watching the events.
Daley lives with his husband, Lance Black, and their son, Robbie.
