One Direction lads urge British diver Tom Daley to ignore online abuse
The talented 18-year-old was subjected to abusive tweets, one of which even led to an arrest and extensive newspaper coverage earlier this week, after finishing fourth in the men's 10-metre synchronised event and several of the 'One Thing' heartthobs have urged Daley (pictured below) to ignore the comments as he did everyone proud.
Member Liam Payne tweeted (July 30): "@TomDaley1994 ignore them dikheads mate we all sat and watched you today and we thought u did incredible."
He later returned to the social networking site and added: "Really enjoyed watching the diving today! :)"
Louis Tomlinson also sent the sportsman a public message and wished him well for the competition: "@TomDaley1994 mate, best of luck for the individual. I'll be watching!!"
