Tom Daley is to carry the Queen's Baton when it touches down in Britain for its tour of the Commonwealth ahead of this summer's games in Glasgow.

The Plymouth born diver will take on the role for the big arrival at St Aubin's harbour in Jersey on Sunday.

It marks the start of the home nations leg of the baton's 288-day international journey and the final run-up to the July 23 opening ceremony.
