Watch: Tom Daley discusses his gruelling Comic Relief challenge
Tom Daley has said he can barely walk after completing his epic Comic Relief challenge and that his husband had to carry him to the loo.
The Olympic diver rowed, swam and cycled 290 miles from London to his home town of Plymouth, in Devon, over four days.
Speaking on BBC Breakfast, he admitted he was feeling “pretty rough” after finishing the Hell Of A Homecoming challenge.
Daley, 27, said he was now being looked after by his mum and his husband Dustin Lance Black.
He said: “I’m at my mum’s house in Plymouth so being looked after but literally when I got up to pee in the middle of the night my husband actually had to carry me and help me because I can’t really walk.”

“It’s honestly the hardest thing I’ve ever put my body through,” said the star.
“With all of the Olympic training that I’ve done my diving lasts 1.6 secs per dive.
“I’ve never done any kind of endurance training.”
Daley started his challenge earlier this week.
He got off to a rocky start when his boat capsized in the Thames, plunging him into the water.
The trek took in places that hold some importance for the diver.
They included the Aquatics Centre in Stratford, which is where the star won his first Olympic medal in 2012.
Daley also visited Dartmoor's Bovey Castle, which is where he and Oscar-winning screenwriter Black tied the knot in 2017.
