The 'Can't Say No' singer opens up on his friendship with the Olympic star.

Conor Maynard has hit out at Twitter trolls such as the one who attacked Team GB London 2012 Olympic diver Tom Daley to brand them "cowards".

The 'Vegas Girl' star told the Daily Star that people should not over step the mark on the social site because they can hide behind a computer.

"It's not fair when people overstep the mark because they are invisible on a computer," he confessed. "It's just cowardly to attack someone over the internet."

Daley received messages over his social networking account after his initial Olympics disappointment -which spoke of his late father.

"In Toms case karma came and smacked that kid round the face," added Conor. "The best bit for me was seeing the backlash that kid got and the amount of support there is for our athletes."

The Brighton star also revealed that Tom told him he was a fan of his music and would be looking to come down to one of his shows in the future.

"I've been chatting to Tom and I didn't realise but he's a big fan. He said he'd love to come along to a gig some time so we are trying to arrange."

Meanwhile, Conor is preparing to release the music video to his latest Ne-Yo featuring single 'Turn Around'.
