During an interview on Graham Norton’s show, diver Tom Daley revealed why his trucks are so darn small.

“They have to be small because everything has to stay in place,”

The diver who will be heading to Rio for this summer’s Olympics continued to explain that unless his trunks are tight – parts of his anatomy “flap” around and hurt.

Tighter trunks eliminate the flapping.


“If you’re spinning around the last thing, you want to do is have something come out of place!

“And when you hit the water you don’t want things flapping about because it would hurt.”

So there you go.. It’s all about keeping Little Tom where he’s suppose to be.
