Hollywood screenwriter Dustin Lance Black has fuelled rumours he is dating British Olympic diver Tom Daley after they were pictured sharing a drink together following a training session in Texas on Wednesday (11Dec13).

The Olympic bronze medallist recently hit headlines in his native U.K. when he revealed he is in a relationship with a man, and rumours linked him to the Milk writer.

They have now been pictured together for the first time as Black, 39, supported Daley, 19, during a training session at the University of Houston's diving centre. In the pictures, published on Justjared.com, Black was photographed wearing a team Great Britain jacket and sipping from the athlete's smoothie drink as they left the venue.

Daley has so far refused to name his partner, but has said of him, "(He) makes me feel safe and happy, right now I couldn't be happier. I'd never felt the feeling of love, it happened so quickly. I was completely overwhelmed by it to the point I can't get him out of my head all the time. I've never had it before where I love someone and they love me just as much."
