There are truly talented people out there, and then there are the true talents that make you feel crappy about your own life. I guess it just wasn't enough for British diver Tom Daley to win an Olympic gold medal in Men's synchronized 10m with diving partner Matty Lee at the Tokyo Games this year.
The 27 year old athlete also happens to be great at knitting, which he has since been famously captured casually doing on stands while spectating other springboard events. Sure, he has mentioned his love for knitting, crochet and all things stitching as the one thing that has kept him sane throughout this whole process, but does he have to be so damn good at it?
He's currently making a sweater complete with the Great Britain flag and Olympic logo. The purple one that went viral? A jumper for Izzy the Frenchie, a Insta-famous pug with 1 million social media following. HE EVEN MADE A COSY FOR HIS MEDAL ALRIGHT.
And here's the cruncher: He's doing it for charity. Just last month, the fan favourite and star of viral Olympic meme content had just raffled one of his works for Brain Tumour Charity, an organisation of choice as his late father passed from brain tumour in 2011.
It's straight up National Treasure status and all the positive vibes in the world.
