TOM Daley is famously known as an Olympic gold medalist.

But away from the pool, he is surrounded by the unconditional love from his family.

Who are Tom Daley’s parents?

Tom Daley is the son of Debbie (née Selvester) and Robert Daley.

His father, Robert, sadly died from a brain tumour on May 27, 2011, aged 40, a few days after Daley’s 17th birthday.

In a candid chat back in 2021 with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning, Tom opened up about struggling with grief.

“I found it really difficult to process that I was never going to see him again, and although I knew he was sick and was going to pass away at some point,” he said.

“when it actually happened it was so horrible to think about I couldn’t let it sink in that he wasn’t going to see me in London 2012 because it was something we had always dreamed of doing together.

“So it was a very challenging thing to try and overcome.”
