Diving legend Greg Louganis has taken to Twitter to confirm that he is getting married to his partner Johnny Chaillot.

In 1988 Louganis became a global superstar when he performed the 'Dive of Death' to seal double Olympic gold in Seoul and became the first male diver to defend both the springboard and platform titles.

In 1995 Louganis came out as being gay and a year later he confirmed that he was HIV positive.

Since retiring, the now 53-year-old has turned his hand to many things, including being an author, a diving coach and a dog trainer. He also acted as a 'Dive Master' on the US version of the TV show Splash.

His partner Johnny is a paralegal.
