Like his idol and mentor Tom Daley, Oscar Piper has his eyes fixed on one day winning Olympic gold.
The six year old, from Torpoint in Cornwall, is rapidly becoming something of an internet sensation after Daley unveiled him as his new protégé.
The 18-year-old Olympic medallist posted footage of Oscar making a courageous jump from the 10 metre board after the youngster was 'devastated' to learn he wasn't old enough to appear on 'Splash!', Daley's prime time show on ITV.
