Tom Daley claimed his second gold medal of the week to crown Great Britain's best performance at the Junior World Diving Championships.

The Olympic bronze medallist stormed to victory in the boys' 10-metre platform event to follow up his win alongside Jack Laugher in the 3m synchro earlier in the week.

The 18-year-old from Plymouth produced a superb sequence of five dives, scoring 108 points with his fourth and 99 with a fifth dive for which he was awarded perfect 10s by five judges and 9 1/2 by the other two.

His total of 663.95 left him 52 points clear of China's Yang Jian, whose compatriot Chen Aisen took bronze. Britain's Daniel Goodfellow did not make the final.

Lydia Rosenthall qualified fourth for the final of the girls' B 3m springboard, but could only finish 11th of 12 after three poor dives in the final.

That meant Britain finished the week with three gold medals, two silver and one bronze.

Laugher also won the 3m springboard solo event and was second in the 1m event, while Alicia Blagg and Hannah Starling were second in the girls' 3m synchro and Starling was third in the 3m springboard.
