Britain's Tom Daley soars through a dive on his way to taking the silver medal in the men's 10m platform final in the Beijing leg of the Diving World Series on Saturday.

The 17-year-old, recently criticised for his media commitments in the build-up to the London Olympics, was beaten only by China's Qui Bo, with fellow Briton Pete Waterfield in third. Daley tweeted: "Wooooop! So happy! The gap is closing!!!"
