Good morning. Please enjoy out-of-the-closet, gold medal-winning Australian diver Matthew Mitcham and his ukelele as he performs a rendition of the Beyonce classic from London.

Mitcham is one of the few openly gay athletes in the world competing at the highest level. He dove his way to a gold medal at the 2008 games in Beijing.

There is no news value here—just something pleasant to brighten your day. Now back to work!

(Thanks to OutSports for finding this.)
