Tom Daley wins his first World Championship medal in six years

Plymouth's Tom Daley has won a bronze medal in the 10 metre platform final at World Diving Championships in Russia.

Daley qualified third for this evening's final, high on confidence after winning gold in the mixed team event on Thursday. It's the first medal Daley has won since his, and at the time Britain's only-ever, individual diving World Championship gold medal in 2009, when he was just 15.

Since then his other major success was a bronze at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The medal shows he is on course to compete in Rio next year.
