Tom Daley called upon the more artistic people of social media for help with the design of his cover image, a challenge that they embraced and had fun with.

Tom Daley took to social media to ask creative fans to design a new cover image, and he may have gotten more than he bargained for.

Those of you who have seen those Photoshop ‘fails’ after someone looks to have a photo modified can probably predict what happened next. There were some subtle submissions, such as one where Daley was suddenly sponsored by Nike rather than Adidas, and some less so, including Daley at The Last Supper, grabbing a selfie with the EgyptAir hijacker, and working with Postman Pat.

Daley will pick the winner of the competition today. He seems to be taking the internet’s hijinks in his stride.
