Television host Piers Morgan hits out at people "spewing bigoted bile" at Tom Daley following his revelation that he is in a gay relationship.

Television host and journalist Piers Morgan has slammed "all the homophobes" criticising Olympic diver Tom Daley for revealing that he is in a gay relationship.

The 19-year-old took the "hard decision" to speak about his sexuality via a video on YouTube, but has claimed that he still 'fancies' girls.

While the Olympic bronze-medallist received a hoard of supportive messages on Twitter, some comments have been rather unsavoury.

Morgan wrote on Twitter: "To all the homophobes out there spewing bigoted bile about Tom Daley, I laugh in your wretched little faces. You're losing, he's winning."

Daley revealed that he met his boyfriend earlier this year.
