TEENAGER DALEY MAKES A BIG SPLASH

YOUNGSTER Tom Daley became Britain’s first world diving champion at the age of 15 after winning the 10m platform final in dramatic style yesterday. The Devon teenager, who shot to fame by qualifying for last year’s Beijing Olympics, was only lying third before the last round but produced a superb closing dive to beat favourite Qiu Bo into second place at the Fina World Championships in Rome.
