The Olympic diver has now posted the first image of the pairs engagement rings alongside a heartfelt message that read: : ‘#HeSaidYES and then #ISaidYES ❤️Thanks for all the lovely messages!’

Exstatic at the news, Toms mom Debbie said: “The whole family is extremely excited and looking forward to the big day. They are going to wait until after the Olympic Games in Rio before they decide on the date of the wedding and where they want to marry.”
She added: “There is an age gap, 20 years, but then again age is but a number.”
