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.
Plymouth diver Tom Daley has scooped a gold medal in the team event at the World Aquatics Championships.
He was competing alongside fellow British diver Rebecca Gallantree in Russia.
Daley's fourth dive scored a near perfect ten with most of the judges.
It's the first time Britain have claimed two medals at a World diving championship event.
Olympic diving star Tom Daley is hoping his trunks will help splash the cash for a deserving charity as he puts them up for auction.
The winning prize comes complete with the Plymouth diver's signature and bidding starts at a cool £300, although auctioneers are keen to point out the trunks are unworn!
All money going to the London Lesbian & Gay Switchboard (LLGS), which provides confidential phone, e-mail and instant messaging services to support people who want to talk about sexuality and gender identity.
Other items up for auction include the original suit worn by Andrew Scott, in his role as Moriarty in the BBC drama Sherlock, and a set of signed photos of Jessie J – which are set to pick up a hefty Price Tag.
Plymouth's Olympic hero Tom Daley was back in Devon today where it all began. He was competing against the best in Britain in the National Championships and came first.
Tom was competing the British Gas Championships. At the Plymouth Life Centre. It gave him the chance to perfect some of the dives he hopes will get him to next year's Olympics in Brazil. One of them is a routine he calls the firework:
Tom's coach Jane Figueireeo has been with him now for just over. She's pleased with his progress so far:
We've got to keep things in the now.We have the world series coming up,six legs of that.So the main focus of that is to stay healthy,keep working on our new dives.
I really wanted him to come back to Plymouth,embrace everybody that's contributed so much to his success.
