Tom is planning a career on the box

Tom Daley reminded everyone that he's still a regular 18-year-old lad by returning to his A-level studies at Plymouth College yesterday.

Tom, who is studying maths, photography and Spanish, was joined by fellow Olympians Ruta Meilutyte, Jade Howard and Jamila Lunkuse.

The students were given a standing ovation in a private assembly, before taking to the streets with other Plymouth-based Olympic and Paralympic competitors for a celebratory open-top bus parade.

It appears that working with the media throughout London 2012 has given Tom a taste for TV.  

'I would like to become a TV presenter or something along those lines,' says the teenager. 

Medallist Tom is eager to spend some time away from rigorous training at the pool and give something different a go. 

'I would love to try anything new really, be it star in a film or playing a small part,' he tells The Daily Star.

'It's crazy the opportunities the Olympics have given me.'
