Tom Daley: 'European Championship disappointment motivated us in Rio'

Britain's Tom Daley left and Daniel Goodfellow right compete during the men's synchronized 10m platform diving final

After executing their final dive, Daley and Goodfellow were made to wait anxiously before their score was confirmed but Daley has insisted that he and his teammate were always confident of winning a medal in Brazil.

Tom Daley says that missing out to Germany in the European Championship provided the motivation for he and Dan Goodfellow to claim bronze in the synchronised 10m platform.

Sharon Goodfellow, Dan's mother, saw the photos and was rightfully bothered that her son wasn't getting equal attention.

We, like everyone else, love Tom Daley (/ are actually a bit obsessed).

Diving last in the 10-meter competition, Daley and Goodfellow turned in a stellar final dive that vaulted them from fifth to third.

"No danger for divers, just not a good image for Olympic Broadcasting Services", said FINA's Cornel Marculescu, adding he was not sure how quickly the pool could be brought back to its normal hue.

Editors often have to make "difficult decisions" which he "wouldn't want to second guess".

What do you think about this insane coverage, HollywoodLifers? "Me and Tom have both been working so hard for this and we're both so happy for each other".

"To me it doesn't really matter".

Tony, who messaged Daniel on Facebook last night to congratulate him, said the sport became a commitment for the whole family.

"Daniel was quite a good swimmer but he tells a story about being in the pool, seeing people diving in the distance and thinking that he wanted to do that".

A dominant parallel bars display from China bumped the British team down to fourth with just the pommel horse - one of GB's strongest pieces - left to go.

In 2009, Tom reached a career best ranking of number one in the FINA World Diving Rankings for the ten-metre platform.

Instead, several newspapers showed a photo of Dan's partner, leading us to ask: who is that guy next to Dan Goodfellow? Though, as irate as she was, she was still very prim and proper.

Rather than blank the nation's current gay sweetheart, publications that have previously criticised - or completely ignored - the LGBT community are now seemingly obsessed with Mr Daley.
