Tom Daley, Dustin Lance Black

Now this is just sweet.

British diver Tom Daley was snapped sharing a tender moment with screenwriter boyfriend Dustin Lance Black at the Westfield Stratford City Mall today in London.

While on the down escalator, Black smoothed a piece of Daley's closely cropped hair back into place—and how fortunate that a paparazzo happened to be going up at the same time!

The couple were later spotted riding away on bicycles, both gentlemen in jeans, a hoodie and sneakers.

Meanwhile, it appears as if the duo have been able to spend a fair amount of time together recently.

A few days ago Black was puzzling over a London sidewalk, writing on Instagram along with a collage of close-ups, "So is it truly bad luck to step on these or is it just @tomdaley1994 making an American Idiot of me... my eyes glued to the ground everywhere I walk."

The writer, who won an Oscar for his Milk screenplay in 2009, also posted an artsy pic of "#LondonTrees" that day, as well as a close-up of a ladybug with the caption, "EnglishLadies rule."

Not as if we didn't know that the 39-year-old scribe was an Anglophile already!

Daley, who competed in the FINA/NVC Diving World Series 2014 in Dubai a week ago, both publicly came out as bisexual and revealed that he was dating a man in December. E! News was first to report back then that the lucky fellow was Black.

"In spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great," Daley, 19, said at the time. "And that someone is a guy. It did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn't until spring this year that something just clicked. It felt right and I thought, 'OK,' and my whole world changed there and then."
