Out athlete Tom Daley said this week that he wants to start a family once his diving career is over.

The 22-year-old Daley is among the more than 40 out athletes participating in this year's Rio Olympics, which start Friday.

“It's not a question of if, just when,” Daley told UK daily The Sun. “I've always said I'll keep diving as long as my body lets me. But the beauty of being an athlete is you retire young and you've got your whole life ahead of you.”

Daley and fiance Dustin Lance Black are planning to marry in August.

“Once I've finished with diving there are gong to be other avenues I'd like to explore,” Daley added. “Family has always been a massive thing.”
