Tom Daley, the 13-year-old from Plymouth, claimed his second medal at the Grand Prix in Madrid with third place in the men's platform individual competition.

Daley took the final medal behind Chinese duo Jia Hu and Liguang Yang who dominated from early on in the event. Daley and his British team-mate Peter Waterfield were left to fight it out for the bronze and Daley took an early advantage in third place which he never surrendered, claiming bronze with an impressive final score of 495.45.

Silver was taken by Liguang Yang with 506.55 with Olympic champion Jia Hu taking gold with 540.75.

Daley had already won a silver in the men's platform synchro with Blake Aldridge on Saturday.
