One day I’ll flyyyy away…
Chris Mears defies gravity in a stunning new naked shoot, which sees him taking off into the blue completely nude.
The Olympic diver was the final ever star for Sport magazine’s Uncovered feature, which sees famous athletes strip down.
“The scar down my abdomen defines who I am as a person,” Chris told the magazine.
“What I went through after rupturing my spleen in 2009 changed my life in so many different ways, all for the positive.
“I’m happy I got ill, because it forced me to push myself.”
Chris and his synchronised diving partner Jack Laugher won gold for the 3m springboard event at the British National Cup last weekend.
Last month, however, fans were quick to console Chris after a handful of explicit Snapchat videos and pictures surfaced across social media.
