Tom Daley will dive in the 10m platform only at this weekend's British Championships as last night the teenager and his synchro partner Peter Waterfield pulled out of tomorrow's team event. The duo will now focus on Sunday's individual platform, the event in which 17-year-old Daley is world champion.

The nationals, which double as the qualifier for next month's World Championships in Shanghai, come just a fortnight after Daley's father Robert died following his long battle with brain cancer.
