Tom Daley Asked Twitter To Help Design His Cover Photo, And It Didn't Go Well

Never tweet.

Top British diver Tom Daley has asked his 2.5million Twitter followers to help design a new cover photo for his profile.

All you needs to do is take the image below and personalise it in your own way!Winner decided on the 6th #COVERDALEY

On Friday, he tweeted the request that people help personalise the above photo of him looking sultry and slick in an Adidas tracksuit, and then tweet him their creations with the hashtag #COVERDALEY.

The best one will win pride of place on Daley's profile next week.

Well. That wasn't a very wise idea now, was it Tom?

@TomDaley1994 here you are, Tom. #coverdaley

Because as we all know full well, people can't help but take the piss out of things.

Here you go @TomDaley1994 #COVERDALEY

Especially on Twitter, a part of the internet that is practically drowning in piss, it's taken there so often.

@TomDaley1994 I 'll do my best! Here's 4 photos. Your choice! #COVERDALEY

Suggestions ranged from the crude.

Tom "don't know anything about that" Daley.

Current affairs were referenced.

Some were just weird.

Photoshop wizard @Andydrewz wins the internet with this image of @TomDaley1994 being menaced by a Voord from Dr Who.

Kindly folk did try to warn him.

But it was no use.

I hope I win. It took me at least 3 minutes to make this. #COVERDALEY

Because at the end of the day, people will always just draw dicks on things.

Seemingly sensing the beast he'd unleashed, Daley later suggested some polite terms and conditions for the competition.

Please do read the T&C’s of the comp guys before you enter! # COVERDALEY

The competition ends on Monday, with a winner announced two days later. We can't wait to see who's won...
