Olympic champion Jack Laugher won gold and Dan Goodfellow silver as Britain achieved a 1-2 in the 3m springboard at the World Series in London.

It is the first time Britain have taken the first two spots in the competition.

Laugher challenged a world record dating back to 2008 en route to gold and the overall World Series crown.

"That is the highest score I have ever been on leading into my final dive," he said after finishing on 562.65 points, just 10 points short of the record.

Goodfellow set a personal best of 500.55 to take silver ahead of China's Zongyuan Wang.
