Tom Daley gets Becks text advice

Tom Daley gets text by Becks

Diving star Tom Daley has revealed he got inspirational text advice from footy legend David Beckham during the Olympics.

Tom, who won a bronze at London 2012, says he thought it was a joke when the first text from Becks came through.

But after checking the number was genuine he's been in constant contact with the ex-England captain.

Becks watched Tom's 10 metre platform final at the Aquatic Centre with his children during the games.
