British Olympic medal hopeful Tom Daly has been forced to compete in a warm up event wearing only his pants, as the diver forgot his kit for the 138th consecutive time.
‘I’m really quite disappointed with Tom, he keeps promising me that he knows where his kit is and will definitely bring it next time, but then he turns up without it time and again and competes in his pants.’ said Daly’s manager, ‘Sports scientists worked for years to develop a state of the art one-piece kit for him to enhance performance and provide the maximum advertising space possible, but it’s no use to anybody if he keeps leaving it at home.’
Some people are starting to suspect that Daly may be deliberately forgetting his kit so that he gets to walk around wearing only his pants as often as possible, but the young athlete insists it’s not his fault.
‘I went to see a doctor the other day and he told me I may have Tom Daly syndrome. Apparently it’s a rare genetic condition that causes me to want to wear only my pants when I compete, pose for photos or even give interviews.’ explained an emotional Daly, while wearing nothing but his pants.
