Tom Daley added the Commonwealth title to his world crown after he held his nerve to see off Olympic champion Matthew Mitcham in the 10metre platform at the Dr SP Mukherjee Aquatics Complex in Delhi.

The pair traded the lead throughout the competition and Daley entered the final round with a lead of just 1.75points.

However, while Daley showed few nerves in producing a very good dive, his Australian rival fluffed his entry and was marked accordingly.

Daley finished with 538.35pts, 27.20 ahead of Mitcham although that did not reflect the close nature of the contest.

It was Daley's second title in two days after he partnered Max Brick to the 10m synchro title yesterday.
