It's undeniably a great thing to love your job, but, in the case of Tom Daley, one could ask if he's taken this a bit too far

The Olympic diver today posted on Twitter a picture of him, on a well-earned holiday, in Spain: 'A touch of rain bathing from yesterday's storm!!'.

If you were to add up the number of hours, days and even years that he has spent training to compete at the most prestigious event in the world sporting calendar, it would be huge.

But the Olympian, who this year took home bronze for the 10m platform dive at the age of just 18 years, appears to feel there is no better way he wants to spend his time off than being exposed to the elements, for an undefined period of time.

The bronze medalist might want to reconsider his habits given his widely suspected delight in having his photograph taken.

Earlier this week, for example, he was pictured wearing only trousers and sophisticated glasses in a pose reminiscent of Superman's alter-ego Clark Kent for Heat magazine.

Other reports have looked at his reunion with his childhood girlfriend and fellow diver Kassidy Cook, 17, who flew from America to see him the day after he received his bronze medal.
