British Olympic diving star Tom Daley has been in the public spotlight from a very young age and had been preparing for the London 2012 Olympics for many years, making the occasion one of the biggest of his career and his life. While competing at the London 2012 Olympics that Summer, Tom met British boyband One Direction and they soon became close friends, hanging out with each other on a number of occasions.
While Tom Daley and the One Direction boys have remained friends over the past couple of years, it does seem that they have started to drift apart a little bit, which can not really be helped. Tom has been speaking about his friendship with One Direction, admitting that their busy work schedules have made it difficult to stay as close as they were.
Daley was speaking in Heat magazine recently when he explained, "I guess you could say that, but I haven't seem them for a long time. They're so busy and dates never work. Niall [Horan] came down to watch Splash! (Tom's television series) though. After the Olympics I would say I was closest to Liam [Payne]."
You can understand just how busy the One Direction guys are, as they continue to prepare for their upcoming Where We Are world stadium tour, which will kick off in Colombia later in the month. From their the One Direction boys will travel around the world, before eventually bringing the Where We Are tour to the UK and Ireland staring on May 23.
