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.

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.
