Hear ye, hear ye: Tom Daley is dating 39-year-old Oscar-winner Dustin Lance Black.

Here's your handy recap in case you were brain dead on Monday: The 19-year-old Olympic diver admitted he was bisexual (he "still fancies girls", after all) and is reportedly in a seriously relationship with DLB (apologies, it's quicker), who is known for making a moving acceptance speech at the Academy Awards in 2009 when he won Best Screenplay for Milk. He is also known for larking about (in a non-sexual way, a' course) with other well-known muscular younglings such as Taylor Lautner. Not that we're one to start totally unfounded rumours or anything.

A helpful friend explained: "He's besotted with Dustin. They love each other and aren't concerned what anyone says about age difference." Another added: "They are officially in a long-term relationship and talking about having a future together. All of their friends are completely supportive of them as a couple. Tom is totally besotted with Dustin - they love each other and aren't concerned about what anyone says about their age difference." Bit of repetition there. Perhaps the laddies doth protest too much.

Another friend speaking to The Sun had this to say regarding Tom's YouTube video: "Dustin is very proud of Tom for making such a powerful statement about his sexuality - it's what he believes in doing. Dustin has given Tom the confidence to be himself. He's in awe of him and proud of him. He no longer minds people knowing they are together." Bit of a back handed compliment there. Perhaps he's still smarting over the "still fancy girls" comment.

Dustin was introduced to Tom through mutual friends at the Soho Hotel in London earlier this year and since then the Olympian has travelled to the screenwriter's Californian home for a series of secret dates. Dustin also penned Clint Eastwood movie J. Edgar but he is most famous for his work on Harvey Milk's biopic (he was the first gay may elected to public office in California, don't you know), which inspired him as a teenager.

He said: "When I was 13 years old, my beautiful mother and my father moved me from a conservative Mormon home in San Antonio, Texas, to California - and I heard the story of Harvey Milk. And it gave me hope. It gave me the hope to live my life. It gave me the hope one day I could live my life openly as who I am and then maybe even I could fall in love and one day get married."

No pressure, Tom.
