Daley and his partner Pete Waterfield finished fourth in the men's synchronised 10m platform diving event at the London Olympics today.

Shortly afterwards, Daley retweeted a message he received from user Rileyy69 which said: "You let your dad down i hope you know that."

Daley responded by tweeting: "After giving it my get idiot's sending me this..."

Daley's father Rob died in 2011 from brain cancer.
