Diver Tom Daley gets recognition from his home city

Olympic diver Tom Daley was among local athletes honoured at a civic reception in Plymouth this evening.

The Lord Mayor wanted to recognise those who competed in this year's Olympic, Paralympic and Invictus Games.

Plymouth is massively proud of all its elite athletes and their achievements this year. It’s fantastic that so many of our sportsmen and women were selected to take part in Rio 2016 and the Invictus Games in Orlando.

The Lord Mayor of Plymouth, Councillor Pauline Murphy

And it was a case of hugs not handshakes. Our reporter Jeff Welch caught up with Tom Daley shortly after the ceremony.
