Synopsis

A deeply personal and inspiring memoir from one of the most celebrated and influential names in British sport.


With his unforgettable medal-winning performance in the 2012 London Olympics, double world champion Tom Daley captured the heart of the nation. This year's Games in Tokyo will be his fourth, and Tom is embarking on them with a renewed sense of perspective about what matters in life.


Over the years, we have watched Tom go from strength to strength professionally, gathering record-breaking achievements and countless awards along the way. But we have also seen him grow into the man he's become today: a husband, a father and a role model.


In Coming Up for Air, Tom explores the moments and experiences that have shaped him. With each chapter, he reveals a lesson learned along the way, from the resilience he developed competing at world-class level, to the courage he discovered while reclaiming the narrative around his sexuality, and the perspective that family life has brought him.


Warm, honest and perceptive, Coming Up for Air offers a unique insight into the life and mindset of one our greatest and most-loved athletes.
