Tom Daley caught knitting at Olympics, so what was he making?

British diver, Tom Daley, was captured knitting in the stands at the women's 3 metre springboard final.

The 27-year-old was caught with knitting needles in hand mid-way through the diving event, crafting something out of pink and purple wool.

Turns out he was making a sweater for his French Bulldog, Izzy! Could he be more of a sweetheart?

The Instagram-famous pooch posted footage of Daley's knitting-in-the-grand-stand situation, captioning it, "Sooo excited!! Did everyone catch #goldmedalist @tomdaley making my jumper at the @olympics?".

Izzy The Frenchie, the Instagram account dedicated to Tom's dog, has 1 million followers. Daley also has an IG fo his knitting and crochet habits, Made With Love By Tom Daley, which has amassed a following of 868k.

Daley explained on @madewithlovebytomdaley that the hobby has kept him grounded through the Olympic journey, "the one thing that has kept me sane throughout this whole process is my love for knitting and crochet and all things stitching."

Last week, the British diver celebrated a gold medal win in the men's synchronised 10-metre platform with his partner, Matty Lee.

To "stop it getting scratched", Tom even knitted a "little cosy" for his medal that featured a Union Jack on one side, and the Japanese flag on the other.

Tom's quite the pro when it comes to knitting and crochet, and has crafted many cardigans, hats, sweaters, baby booties and even cute toys!
