Diver Tom Daley and his boyfriend Dustin Black have been spotted getting high at an American theme park for Daley’s 21st birthday. Not only did they ride in the front row of roller coasters like the SheiKra and the Cheetah Hunt at Busch Gardens Tampa Theme Park in Florida, they also toured the safari where they got up close and personal with giraffe – snapping selfies and hand feeding the giant animal.

One photo shows his friends comically sporting masks with his face on them, while he fearlessly rides with both hands in the air!

‘I’m in Florida on holiday for some down time with my friends, after the World Championships and to properly celebrate my birthday,’ Tom said. ‘It’s been a pretty hectic year for me so it’s nice to be able to spend some time having fun with my friends.

‘The rollercoasters at Busch Gardens today were amazing, it was hilarious to see everyone’s reactions when they tried Falcon’s Fury for the first time!’

The group kept cool in the hot Florida sun by constantly applying sunscreen and riding the Stanley Falls Flume – a ride that ends with a drenching 12m (40ft) drop.

The diver won two medals at the Championships in Kazan last week – including his first individual World Championship medal since 2009.
