17-year old is arrested after internet troll abuses teenage British Olympian

LONDON. – The British police arrested a 17-year-old who made offensive statements on Twitter against the teenage British Olympic diver, Tom Daley. 

Tom, 18, was “gutted” after narrowly failing to win a medal in memory of his dad.

Daley came in fourth in 10m diving, and his anguish was made even worse when an internet troll taunted him by saying: “You let your dad down, you let our country down.”

The person who sent this message was taken under custody Tuesday, and the police will question him, The Sun writes. 

To note, 25 athletes are representing Armenia at the 2012 London Olympics, which officially kicked off on July 27 and they will come to a close on August 12.
