    Still a great performance from Tom & Pete - just shows how a couple of little mistakes can make a world of difference - there are no margins for error at all in this event!

    The guys were in the lead, actually ahead of the Chinese for a while, until an error on dive 4 and a smaller error in dive 5 pushed them down to fourth place.

    The Mexican team deserved their silver medal for sheer guts - they purposely chose to attempt some ridiculously difficult dives, knowing that as long as they completed them reasonably well, the difficulty rating would compensate for any minor errors in execution - risky stuff, but well played

    Tom Daley's diving partner, Pete Waterfield, speaking on BBC One: "On the fourth drive, I just kicked a bit high and couldn't stop it. In this competition you can't make mistakes and it left a lot to do. The last two dives were brilliant, but it was not enough. It was not our day, it was not meant to be, but the crowd were amazing. It would have been lovely to stand on the rostrum in front of them."
    Tom Daley speaking to BBC One: "The crowd have been amazing, I'm getting emotional thinking about it. It was all we dreamed of and to come fourth was so agonising after training so hard. We've got the individual events to look forward to and hopefully we'll get back on our game.

    It started really well and we got personal bests on the first two dives, and the third dive was really good, but the fourth was not good enough. You miss one dive and you are gone. Seventy one points in a competition like this, it is unheard of to finish fourth still. We needed just another nine points, which we normally can do, but it is the way sport goes. It's annoying but what can you do?"

    At 15-133, Ruta Meilutyte from #Lithuania is the youngest ever winner of the Olympic 100m breaststroke gold medal.

    At that age she'd not be allowed to compete in the pro-tennis circuit or gymnastics events ......
