Watch: Tom Daley tells us about coming home to Plymouth, the Tokyo Olympics and bacon sandwiches

Tom Daley has told ITV West Country he's already working hard for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

The diver who won bronze in the Olympics in Rio was back in Plymouth to sign copies of his new book - Tom's Daily Plan - which is full of healthy recipes and exercise tips.

But he says there's no need to cut out those bacon sandwiches because it's all about moderation.

Daley fails to qualify for 10 metre platform final

Tom Daley's bid for Olympic gold in Rio is over after he failed to qualify from the semi-finals of the 10 metres platform event.

The 22-year-old from Plymouth looked well placed to improve on his London 2012 bronze after placing first in Friday's preliminary round.

But he endured a poor first three rounds of the semi-final at Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre and his inability to recover in the remaining three meant he suffered the ignominy of finishing last of the 18 competitors, with the top 12 making it through.

Before the games Daley had boldly claimed he would be satisfied with nothing less than gold from his individual event.
