Tom Daley says the best is yet to come

Tom Daley is already turning his attention to Olympic glory in Rio de Janeiro in four years' time. He said he was "over the moon" with winning bronze last night. But speaking to BBC Radio Five Live he added:

"Most people peak in diving at about 22, that's just in time for the Rio Olympics so that'll hopefully be my performance peak... I've got four more years, it's about building strength, building consistency and getting even better."

Tom Daley: The dedication paid off, it feels great

After winning bronze in the Aquatic Centre last night Tom Daley was up early today, proudly talking about his Olympic success. Speaking to BBC TV he also spoke about the problems he had with people taking pictures while he dived:

"There were lots of flashes. As I took off I twisted that way [towards the crowd] and all the flashes distracted me... It means so much all the sacrifice, dedication, hard work, it's good to have something to show for it... it feels great...

I've been secretly telling myself the pressure is fine and all good... but deep down my heart was going, but I could do no more. I went out and gave it everything."
