Tom Daley is lastly an Olympic gold medallist.
The 27-year-old, together with Matty Lee, claimed glory at Tokyo with a surprising efficiency within the synchronised 10m platform.
Daley was catapulted to stardom again in 2008 when he was simply 14 on the Beijing Olympics.
He gained bronze medals at London in 2012 and Rio in 2016 and now, in his fourth video games, has the last word prize.
For Lee, 23, it’s gold on his first try on the Olympics.
The nerveless duo completed with 471.81 factors having by no means dropped out of the highest two and took the Olympic title 1.23 factors forward of China, with the Russian Olympic Committee third.
The pair began properly after an inward one-and-a-half somersault pike within the first spherical and continued their kind to guide with two rounds left.
China’s poor dive – a rating of 73.44 factors was ranked sixth within the fourth spherical – left the path to gold open for Daley and Lee.
They scored 93.96 within the fourth spherical with a formidable backwards three-and-a-half somersaults pike to take cost.
A fifth dive – a reverse three-and-a-half somersaults tuck – earned 89.76 factors to place the stress on China forward of the ultimate spherical.
The British pair had been 1.74 factors forward and a formidable ahead four-and-half somersault tuck earned them 101.01 factors and China couldn’t catch them with their last effort.
It was Workforce GB’s second gold medal of the video games as Adam Peaty obtained the ball rolling within the early hours of Monday morning.
Peaty turned the primary British swimmer to retain an Olympic title with a characteristically dominant show within the last of the lads’s 100 metres breaststroke on the Tokyo Aquatics Centre.
