Cheryl wants to learn how to dive

Cheryl Cole has been chatting to teen Olympic hopeful Tom Daley online.

The singer Tweeted Tom, 18, to ask if he could help her learn some tricks on the diving board – and Tom sent a very cheeky reply.

‘@tomdaley1994 I think you are amazing! Will you teach me how to swan dive?,’ Tweeted Cheryl, 29.

Tom replied: ‘Of course!!! But first you need to follow me ;).’

Tom is sure to have welcomed Cheryl‘s friendly message after he was targeted on Twitter earlier this week for being placed 4th in the synchronised diving event with partner Pete Waterfield.

The malicious user accused Tom of letting down his father Rob – who died of cancer aged 40 last year – by missing out on a medal.

Dorset Police said last night that a 17-year-old had ‘been issued with a harassment warning in connection to Tweets to Tom Daley‘ and that he’d been bailed while they investigate his Twitter account further.
