Tom Daley Licks Lollipop While Unboxing Condoms, Finishes Cardigan

Photos of Tom Daley with a lollipop and him in a cardigan he knitted

Out diving gold medalist Tom Daley and his Olympic teammate Noah Williams have gone viral in a TikTok video showing just how many condoms Olympic athletes received at the Games.

Williams, 21, posted the video showing him and Daley, 27, unboxing the Olympic condoms that he received. Backing the unboxing was the latest single from out rapper Lil Nas X, “Industry Baby.”

The video shows a piece of paper on top of the box explaining the history of providing free condoms to Olympic athletes.

It then shows Williams and Daley looking wide-eyed at the hundreds of condoms in the box.

As Lil Nas X sings “This one is for the champions,” the camera turns to Daley as he sticks a lollipop in his mouth.

Daley commented on Williams’s video, writing, “Not me minding my business with a lollipop.”

The video has over 5.5 million views and over 812,000 likes.

Since the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, condoms have been given out to Olympians to raise awareness about HIV. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Olympic Games organizers are encouraging athletes to abstain from sex but to take the condoms back to their home countries to continue the awareness-raising campaign. Organizers planned to give out around 150,000 condoms at this year’s games.

Daley also posted on his knitting Instagram account that his finished the Olympic cardigan he’d been knitting throughout the games.

“Thoughts and opinions, please,” he asked in the Instagram video, “but be nice.”

He wrote on the post, “When I got to Tokyo, I wanted to make something that would remind me of these games. Something that I could say I made in Tokyo, during the Olympics!”

In a separate post, Daley added that he would take the attention on his knitting and do something good.

“Since my knitting page is gaining momentum, I wanted to take the opportunity to try and raise some money for the @thebraintumourcharity in memory of my Dad! Any donations would be greatly appreciated,” he wrote.

Daley’s father died of cancer in 2011 after first being diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2006. The Brain Tumour Charity is a U.K.-based group that raises awareness about brain tumors and collects funding for research on them.
