Google Street View takes a dive with Tom Daley

Make a splash in Tom Daley's Speedos with a Google Maps Street View tour inside the London 2012 Aquatics Centre.

Ever wanted to make a splash in Tom Daley's Speedos? Google is offering the next best thing with a Google Maps Street View tour inside the London 2012 Aquatics Centre, with Olympic hero Daley poised on the top board.

The virtual tour includes more than 120 360-degree panoramas in the £296m Aquatics Centre in Stratford, East London. Divin' Daley and his Olympic tattoo can be found on the 10-meter board ready to head water-wards, but sadly you can't dive off in the Google tour.

2724 high resolution panoramic images were stitched together by Ideal Insights for the virtual nosey around various level of the scene of the watery bits of the London 2012 Olympics, which holds a whopping 10 million gallons of water.

That is definitely 19-year-old Tom, even though Google has followed its usual precaution of blurring his face to protect the identity of those captured by the Street View cameras.

Daley won a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympics, and although he was injured last year, did entertain the nation in the inexplicably popular ITV celebrity diving show Splash!
