Tom Daley is a man of many talents.

Not only is he an Olympic gold medallist and a national treasure, but he's a pretty impressive knitter too.

Who knew?

The Olympic diver was spotted knitting whilst watching the women's 3m springboard final in Tokyo on Sunday morning and social media went wild for it

Wearing his Team GB kit and mandatory mask, Tom looking busy with knitting needles in hand and some purple wool.

As the camera turned on him a BBC commentator said "There's Tom Daley - he's got his knitting needles out. What do you reckon he's crafting there. I wonder who he's making that purple concoction for?"

Well it turns out he was making a little jumper for a dog.

How cute

The British diver showed off his finished masterpiece on his knitting Instagram account @madewithlovebytomdaley and revealed it was for a dog called Izzy the Frenchie.

Tom, who won his first Olympic gold alongside Matty Lee in the synchronised 10m platform event in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, has also knitted a little pouch to keep his gold medal safe. It has Union Jack on one side and the Japanese flag on the other.

"The one thing that has kept me sane throughout this whole process is my love for knitting and crochet and all things stitching," he said in an Instagram video on his knitting and crochet page.

And we can expect more stitching content to come as Tom has also revealed he's in the process of knitting a GB cardigan.

We can't wait to see how this one turns out.

Can knitting be an Olympic sport?
