England have secured yet another 1-2 on the Gold Coast, as Tom Daley and his partner Dan Goodfellow won gold in the synchronised 10m platform.
The dynamic duo narrowly pipped the younger English pair of Matthew Dixon and Noah Williams who won silver, in a hugely entertaining final.
The gold will be of huge satisfaction to Daley in particular, after he was forced to withdraw from the individual events earlier this week, and it is yet more evidence of England’s supremacy in the sport.
Speaking after their win, Daley said: "It’s been a really rough five days in the build-up to the competition and that’s why this medal means so much. It’s been day in, day out in recovery and ice baths and I was doing everything I could to get on that start line. So really happy with the way it’s turned out."
Dan Goodfellow said: “The second dive is usually my best one but it was short and vertical so it was a bit of a fight but we're delighted to have done it."
With Jack Laughler already having bagged two golds this week, this was arguably an expected victory for Daley and Goodfellow while the young English pair performed phenomenally for silver.
Half way through what was already a remarkably close final, it was the younger England combination of Dixon and Williams who led the standings with Daley and Goodfellow in second at the half way mark.
The fourth round then saw both pairs of divers improve their efforts dramatically with brilliant synchronisation resulting in the judges awarding marks that saw them sit at the top of the standings.
England's Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow made their play for the title with a big 90.72 dive, then team-mates Matthew Dixon and Noah Williams score 65.70.
Daley and Goodfellow had a whopping lead and despite being run enormously close by Dixon and Williams in the last dive, it was the more experienced duo who held on to cap a memorable event for Team England.
