Diver Tom Daley is greeting passengers at Heathrow Airport in London, but it's not what you think!

A life-size wire sculpture showing the star mid-dive has been unveiled in Terminal 5's departures area.

It's part of a special art exhibition to mark the 2012 Olympics coming to London.

And Tom's not alone - there's a sculpture of sprinter Jason Gardener speeding away nearby. Maybe he's late for his flight?!

Eight smaller bronze models of athletes are also part of the exhibition, which is on at Heathrow until the end of September.

A bigger collection of 30 full-scale art pieces will be created and displayed around the UK for the Games.
