GB diver Tom Daley has taken the 10m platform bronze medal in style after a nail-biting final.

He performed six excellent dives in front of a sell-out crowd of 17,500 and was even cheered on by David Beckham.

Tom had a tiny lead going into the last round, but his two main rivals were both trying more difficult dives so it was hard for him to top the table.

But Tom was still pleased: "The main aim here was to get a medal. Olympic bronze medal - I can't believe it!"

The 18-year-old dedicated his Olympic medal to his father, who died last year of cancer.

He said: "I know that if he was here he would be very proud."

David Boudia from the USA won gold and China's Qiu Bo got the silver.
