Near miss for diver on 10m platform

Belarus's Vadim Kaptur performs an inward three and a half somersault dive and narrowly avoids hitting his head on the 10m platform.

The Belarussian diver suffered a horrible injury performing the same dive at the world championships in Shanghai in 2011.

Kaptur failed to qualify for Saturday's semi-finals as only the top 18 divers made it through, Great Britain's Pete Waterfield also went out, but Tom Daley qualified in 15th place.
