Spectators 'still love' Daley and Waterfield after failed medal bid

Spectators leaving the Aquatic Centre said their high hopes for gold had been dashed after China, Mexico and the US took the top three spots, leaving Great Britain in fourth place.

Council worker Andy Jennings, 44, from Birmingham, said: "I'm absolutely gutted. It was so exciting in the first three rounds, and then, oh what a shame.

"We really thought there was going to be a gold, we had such high expectations."

But he added that watching the pair in the synchronised 10m platform final had been an "amazing" experience and said, "we still love them both."

Website manager Barry Wade, 44, from Nottingham, said: "I think the guys did a really good job. They work really hard and they gave it their best shot.

"They were doing so well at first but then there were a couple of errors where they slipped up.

"At the end of the day we came here to see a couple of guys give it their all and that's what we've seen so I'm still happy."

Daley: 'If you miss one dive you're gone'

Tom Daley has said that he and team mate Peter Waterfield missed out on a medal due to 'one bad dive.' Speaking after coming fourth in the men's 10m synchronised diving finals Tom said:

"It started off really well, we got a personnel best on our first two required dives and then on our third dive was really good. It was just our fourth dive and if you miss one dive in a field like that you're gone.

"We did pretty well to stay with them and come in fourth place after a missing a dive that badly. It's the way the sport goes sometimes it goes in your favour, sometimes it goes against you, it is annoying - but then, what can you do?"

Waterfield: 'It wasn't our day'

Peter Waterfield has said that it was 'not our day' after coming fourth in the men's 10m synchronised diving with Tom Daley

In this competition you can't make mistakes and unfortunately we left our selves with a lot to do. Our last two dives were brilliant but it was just not enough. it wasn't our day and it wasn't meant to be, but the crowd were amazing and it would have been lovely to stand on the rostrum in front of them but not today.

Daley on 'agonising' fourth place

Tom Daley has said it was 'agonising' to come in fourth and leave the men's 10m synchronised final without a medal:

The crowd have been absolutely amazing, I'm getting emotional thinking about it because it's all of what we've dreamed of and to come fourth is just so agonising after all the hard work and all the training. But we have got out individual event coming up so hopefully we'll be able to get back on our game for that.
