Plymouth-born Olympic diver Tom Daley has finished school.

The bronze medallist sat his last A-level exam at the independent Plymouth College.

The 19-year-old should have left school last summer but delayed some of his studies to train for the Olympics.

"Last day of school today! I'd officially like to thank @PlymouthColleg1 for their massive contribution to my career and all their support!"

Daley already has A grade A-levels in photography and Spanish and an AS level in maths.

The teenager, who was sitting his final maths exam on Thursday, will collect his results alongside thousands of others across the country in August.

Plymouth College celebrated success at London 2012 with Daley winning bronze in the 10m men's platform event while Lithuanian swimmer Ruta Meilutyte secured gold in the women's 100m breaststroke.

Meanwhile, It's been announced that he has had to pull out of next week's European diving championships in Germany.

The Olympic bronze medallist is recovering from an elbow injury and it was decided that he should rest and prepare for the world championships in Barcelona this summer.

But reigning European champions, Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow - who are also from Plymouth - will compete.
