A 17-year-old arrested after a malicious tweet was sent to Olympic diver Tom Daley has been issued with a harassment warning.
Dorset police said the teenager was bailed while they look at other tweets.
He was detained at a guesthouse in Weymouth hours after 18-year-old Daley received the messages.
Daley and his Team GB diving partner Pete Waterfield missed out on a medal after finishing fourth in the men's synchronised 10-metre platform diving.
Shortly after the event on Tuesday (30 July), Daley retweeted a message from a user which said: "You let your dad down i hope you know that."
Daley responded by tweeting: "After giving it my all... you get idiots sending me this..."
Tom Daley's father Rob died last year from brain cancer.
