The 17-year-old male, who caused furore on the Internet yesterday after sending Olympic diver Tom Daley offensive tweets, has been arrested. The man from Weymouth was arrested at a guest house following a series of hateful messages directed towards Tom via social networking site ‘Twitter‘.
After failing to make the top 3 rank in the synchronised diving, the user wrote: “You let your Dad down I hope you know that. I’m going to find you and I’m going to drown you in the pool you cocky twat your a nobody people like you make me sick.” Tom wrote to his many followers in response: “Thank you everyone for all your support before, during and after the synchro, the atmosphere was incredible! Now focusing on the individual.”
