Tom Daley's Olympic trunks to go on public display
Swimming trunks worn by Plymouth diving star Tom Daley are to go on display at a museum as part of an exhibition on London 2012.
The young Olympian's 28-inch trunks, emblazoned with the stylised Union Jack Team GB design by Stella McCartney, will take pride of place at the Museum of London.
They will stand next to a long-sleeved dark blue leotard which was worn by medal-winning gymnast Beth Tweddle.
Her outfit is embellished with rhinestones and signed by the gymnast. She wore the same design when she performed her bronze-medal winning routine on the uneven bars.

Beth said: "The 2012 Olympic Games was the experience of a lifetime, enhanced by the amazing support of the British public, so I'm very proud that my Team GB kit will be displayed in the future for everyone to enjoy."
The display of Olympic and Paralympic outfits including the trunks and leotard is planned for the spring.
Beatrice Behlen, the museum's senior curator of fashion and decorative arts, said: "The 2012 Olympics and Paralympics were such an uplifting and momentous occasion for London. We are delighted to have been given such recognisable items from the Games. They represent a significant moment in London's history and this means we can protect and preserve them for generations to come."
