Tom Daley is through to the final of the men’s 10m platform final after finishing in fourth in the semi-final.
The GB star is aiming to collect another gold medal at Tokyo 2020 after his epic synchronised 10m victory with Matty Lee.
The 27-year-old comfortably made the final even with an inconsistent performance in the semi-final, scoring a total of 462.90.

Daley’s opening dive of a reverse 3½ somersaults earned him a disappointing 71.40, but the Brit drastically improved for his second dive, which scored 81.60.
A 54.00 in Daley’s third dive, however, put him back under pressure in ninth position at the mid-way point.
Daley got back on track with a 73.50 from his fourth dive of an armstand back 3 somersaults.
