Olympic Diver Dan Goodfellow’s Mum Ain't Happy That Tom Daley Is Getting All The Glory
Have you ever put in loads of effort to achieve something with one of your work pals only for them to then reap all the glory and you get sweet fuck all recognition? There is literally nothing worse, is there?
More often than not, though, you can't be arsed making a big fuss over it so you let it go. Sharon Goodfellow, however, is not letting this go. And nor should she.
Her 19-year-old son, Dan Goodfellow, won bronze in the men's synchronised 10m platform event on Monday. However, every newspaper in the land ran with huge photographs of golden balls, Tom Daley.
In one article, Goodfellow was identified only as Daley's 'synchronised partner'. Burrrrrrn.
But, Sharon, yeah, she ain't having it.
After she spotted a tweet of The Daily Telegraph's front page last night, she tweeted: "I am very surprised by this photo. Is it for real? I am Dan's mum."
It seems like loads of people on Twitter are pissed off about it too..
Does seem a bit tight, doesn't it? Poor lad.
