Abuse of Team GB diver Tom Daley on Twitter is being investigated by Dorset Police, it's been confirmed.
After coming fourth in the men's synchronised 10m platform diving event on Monday, the 18 year-old received a message telling him he had let down his father.
Daley's father Rob died in 2011 from brain cancer. Daley responded by tweeting: "After giving it my all...you get idiot's sending me this..."
A Dorset Police spokeswoman said: "We are aware of the issue and we are actively looking into it."
The Twitter account from which the message was sent has been suspended.
