Daley admits to fear of dive

Tom Daley tells BBC Sport's Nick Hope he is "terrified" of performing his 'twister' dive after coming fifth at the World Series final at London's Aquatics Centre.

The former world champion, who trains at the Aquatics Centre, averaged 92.85 from his five other dives, but scored just 61.2 for the 'back two-and-a-half somersault, two-and-a-half twists from the pike position' routine.

Daley, 19, making his competitive return to the venue where he won Olympic bronze in 2012, scored 525.45 as China's Jian Yang, 19, took gold in a new world record total of 616.5.
