Plymouth diver Tom Daley is building up for his next appearance at London 2012. The 18 year old will compete in the Men's 10m Platform which gets underway this evening.

A medal in the event will be a tough ask for the current world champion who will face stiff competition from China.

The young start has tweeted ahead of his competition.
