One Direction's Liam Payne reaches out to diver Tom Daley after internet abuse

One Direction star Liam Payne has spoken of how he took Olympic diver Tom Daley on a night out after hearing that he received abuse online.

18-year-old Daley, who picked up a bronze medal in the men's 10m platform event at London 2012, was the victim of Twitter abuse during the games.

The One Direction lads had picked up on the abuse and tweeted Daley messages of support at the time.

Speaking to The Sun at the weekend's V Festival, Liam Payne said that he managed to find Daley's phone number and subsequently organised a night out together. He said:

"I heard about that troll and thought it was awful. So I got Tom's number and we arranged a great night out."

Payne's girlfriend, Danielle Peazer, uploaded a photo on Friday (August 17) onto Twitter of the trio out having a good time.
