In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Tom Daley said it was "surreal" but "very cool" to be named “Sexiest Man” by Attitude, the U.K.'s leading gay rag.

"It's cool, any support I appreciate," the 19-year-old diver continues. "Everyone's been so supportive. [The voters] are the people cheering me on during the Olympics, these are the people that give me extra motivation during training. I really appreciate it."

Tom, who just announced that his oft-shirtless travels will be documented in a British reality show called Tom Daley Takes On The World, also touched on the challenges of living up to his heartthrob status: "I don't really feel any pressure because I'm training five hours a day, but you do feel like you're being constantly watched and looked at."

Us? Constantly watching and looking?
