Daley - father's condition brought us 'closer'

Double Commonwealth Champion Tom Daley has revealed that his father Rob's terminal illness brought the pair closer and built a "really strong connection."

Rob Daley passed away in May 2011, but speaking to BBC Sport's Nick Hope at his pre-Olympic training camp in Palma, Spain, the 2009 World Champion says he hopes to do well at the Olympics for his family after a "difficult year".
