Conor Maynard blasts Tom Daley's Twitter troll

Conor Maynard has blasted the troll who sent sick messages to Tom Daley.

The ‘Can’t Say No’ singer, who recently admitted he would like to become a coach on The Voice, told the Daily Star that he was so pleased the diving star answered his tormentor in the best possible way:

“It’s not fair when people overstep the mark because they are invisible on a computer. It’s just cowardly to attack someone over the internet.

“But in Tom’s case karma came and smacked that kid round the face. The best bit for me was seeing the backlash that kid got and the amount of support there is for our athletes.”

The 19-year-old, who this week unveiled a lyric video for new single, 'Turn Around,' revealed that he has recently become friends with the Olympic bronze medallist:

“I’ve been chatting to Tom and I didn’t realise but he’s a big fan. He said he’d love to come along to a gig some time so we are trying to arrange.”
