Nicholas Robinson-Baker and Ben Swain finished seventh in the men's synchronised 3m springboard, to the bemusement of Britain's national performance director Steve Foley.

"That was a great performance and if you understand the judging better than me then you are an expert," he said. "We are getting crucified and I don't know why. The boys today missed one dive a little bit and they finished seventh. Some of the other teams missed two dives and they are above us. I think it is reputation."
