As reaction from supporters of Tom Daley intensifies following a comment he was sent on Twitter referring to his late father, a teenager from Weymouth has been issued with a harassment warning.
The 17-year-old boy was arrested in the early hours of this morning on suspicion of malicious communications after he tweeted Daley telling him he'd let his late father down. He later apologised through the social networking site.
Daley made the comment public after responding to the tweet saying 'After giving it my all ... you get idiot's sending me this ...'
Since then he has had a wave of support from people outraged by the comments made after he narrowly missed out on a medal with his Olympic diving partner Peter Waterfield.
Daley's dad, who admitted he was his son's biggest fan, died last year following a long battle with brain cancer.
Among those wishing Daley well are visitors to ITV Westcountry's Facebook page.

Tom getting on to the team is a massive achievement and I'm sure his father would be very proud.

Tom keep going. Your family friends and Plymouth support you. Go for it.

Your Dad would be very proud of you, as are most people - keep up the good work :)
The teenager, who can't be named for legal reasons, has been bailed to return to a Dorset police station at a later date while Dorset Police investigate other comments made on his Twitter account.
