After knitting a pouch for his gold medal, British diver Tom Daley showed off another DIY project that he finished during his time in Tokyo.

On Wednesday, Daley shared a video on his second Instagram account, @madewithlovebytomdaley, of the cardigan he had made to commemorate his time at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

"When I got to Tokyo, I wanted to make something that would remind me of these games. Something that I could say I had made in Tokyo, during the Olympics," Daley said.

He designed the cardigan with the Team GB logo on the back, "GBR" and the Union Jack flag embroidered on the arms, and the word Tokyo embroidered in Japanese characters on the front.

Since Daley has been at the Olympics, he's made headlines for showing off his love of knitting.

On Sunday, he was photographed knitting while watching the women's springboard diving final.

When Daley showed off the pouch he made for his gold medal, he revealed that knitting and crocheting helped him stay "sane throughout this whole process" of training and competing in the games.

Daley, who also has a YouTube channel with more than 900,000 subscribers, has become a standout star at this year's Olympics. He first was part of Team Great Britain at the 2008 Beijing Olympics when he was 14, then again at the 2012 London and 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games. Daley, alongside his partner Matty Lee, won their first Olympic gold medal in Tokyo in the men's 10-meter synchronized diving event.
