Yes, Daley is being much applauded for his video message.
The Telegraph calls Daley the "most signficant" British athlete to come out.
Daley said he made the announcement via YouTube so that his words wouldn't get "twisted." But The Baltimore Sun points out that's already happening.
"Despite all the blog headlines and Facebook and Twitter posts saying Daley 'came out' as gay, what he really did was tell the world that he is in a relationship with a man."
Still, Daley says he's excited to head to the Olympics in Rio in 2016.
