Tom Daley has won his second gold medal of the Junior World Diving Championships in Adelaide, Australia with victory in the 10-metre platform event. The 18-year-old scored 663.95 points, 52 clear of China's Yang Jian. Tom had already won gold with team-mate Jack Laugher in the synchronised 3m springboard on Tuesday.
"I'm really happy with my performance," said our Olympic bronze medallist. "Scoring straight 10s on my last two dives was one of my best achievements. It has been an amazing week by the whole team and will be tough to beat. I'm looking forward to a break now and chilling out a bit before the nationals in February."
Tom's second gold rounds off Britain's best ever performance at the event, with three gold medals, two silver and a bronze.
Daley, from Plymouth, produced a superb sequence of five dives, scoring 108 points with his fourth and 99 with a fifth dive that earned perfect 10s from five judges.
Lustralboy is thrilled by Tom 's double gold. A lesser hero would be resting on his Olympic heroes. Not our Tom!
