He went on to become the first British diver to win 4 Olympic medals and subsequently became a national treasure.
Daley's good looks and charisma meant that media stardom followed his athletic success and his role in the celebrity diving reality TV show, Splash! has resulted in him becoming the most prominent representative of his sport.
As he banishes thoughts of retirement and steels himself to defend his Olympic diving title in Paris in 2024, what is Tom Daley’s net worth in 2022?
What Is Tom Daley’s Net Worth?
As of 2022, Tom Daley’s net worth is estimated to be $4 million (£3.3 million) according to celebritynetworth.
This wealth is the sum total of his diving winnings, business ventures, media appearances and his series of books on topics as disparate as cooking and knitting as well as autobiographical accounts of his glittering career.
The star diver is also a brand ambassador for Adidas.
Now aged 28, Daley shows no signs of slowing down. He took home a gold and bronze medal from Tokyo 2020, breaking the record for the most medals won by a British diver.
He is determined to compete at Paris 2024, and will doubtless achieve further glory.
Out of the pool, Daley has a hugely popular Youtube channel that covers various topics like vlogs, exercise and food; he came out as gay on the platform in a brave and heartwarming video.
In 2021, he told NBC News that he would make it his "mission to make it so that the countries [where it's] punishable by death for LGBT people are not allowed to compete at the Olympic Games."
Daley took up knitting and crochet during the Covid-19 pandemic and during the 2020 Olympics he unveiled an Olympic-themed cardigan that he knitted.
Hilariously, the diver often knits in the stands while others compete!
Daley lives in a gorgeous triplex apartment in Southwark, London with his husband Dustin Lance Black and their son Robbie Ray.
