Tom Daley has broken a run of three silver medals in the FINA World Diving Series with a gold in the final round in Tijuana, Mexico.

He won with his best score of the series (562.85) and scored a perfect 10 on his final dive, confirming his status as the main Olympic opposition to the absent Chinese Qiu Bo.

Daley also won bronze in the synchro event with Peter Waterfield. GB's men's three-metre synchro pair Chris Mears and Nick Robinson-Baker won silver and Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow got bronze on the women's platform.
