Tom Daley is expected to take part in this weekend's qualifiers for the World Championships despite attending his father's funeral yesterday.

Daley is due to begin the first stage in the defence of his 10m platform world title at the National Diving Championships in Leeds. The 17-year-old's presence at the meet, which doubles as the qualifiers for next month's World Championships in Shanghai, was in doubt after his father Robert lost his long battle with brain cancer less than a fortnight ago.
