The diver says that he and his husband-to-be Dustin Lance-Black plan on having children once that his Olympic duties are over.

In an interview with The Sun, the athelete said how his main priority after the games will be family.

Speaking in The Sun, he said: “It’s not a question of ‘if’, just 'when’. I’ve always said I’ll keep diving as long as my body lets me.

"But the beauty of being an athlete is you retire young and you’ve got your whole life ahead of you.

"Once I’ve finished with diving there are going to be other avenues I’d like to explore. Family has always been a massive thing.”

Sadly, Tom lost his father to brain cancer back in 2011 shortly before won bronze at London 2012.

The 22-year-old says the experience has made him view life in a totally new light.

Speaking in a recent documentary, he said: “Losing my dad has made me think about life in such a different way.”

“It’s been weird adapting to life without him but all the lessons that he’s taught me, I’ve tried to live by.”

“I think he’s really shaped me into the person that I am today.”

He previously said: “It was heartbreaking not having him see me win bronze in London. You see me stood up there on my own, but there’s a whole team - coaches, physios, psychologists, nutritionists, strength and conditioning team, sports massage, my dad, my mum, all my family, friends, Lance… That’s why I say 'We won’. Because I’m doing it for everyone.”
