Robert, died from a brain tumour on 27 May 2011, aged 40, just a few days after Daley’s 17th birthday. His early diving hero was Canadian diver Alexandre Despatie, who won gold at the 1998 Commonwealth Games at the age of 13, and British diver Leon Taylor, who later mentored him.
Daley was spotted by a coach, taking part in regular diving lessons, and was placed in a competitive squad in September 2002. His first competition was the National Novice Championships in April 2003 where he won a medal in the 8/9-year-old boys category.
From age 11 to 14 Daley attended Eggbuckland Community College. At 13 he became a celebrity supporter of Childline, a children’s helpline run by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), and at that time it was revealed that he had been bullied eighteen months earlier.
Daley was offered a full scholarship to board at independent school Brighton College, but his father turned this down due to the distance from home, and entered negotiations with local independent school Plymouth College, which had offered him a “very significant scholarship”.
In 2012, Daley finished his two-year A-level studies in mathematics, Spanish and photography. Daley decided not to undertake an International Baccalaureate course because of the pressures he faced in his preparation for the 2012 Olympics. He received an A* in his Photography A-level, and an A in his Spanish and Maths A-levels.

He started diving at the age of seven and is a member of Plymouth Diving Club, where his talent was identified early, and made an impact in national and international competitions from age 9.
He represented Great Britain at the 2008 Summer Olympics where he was Britain’s youngest competitor, age 14, and the youngest from any nation to participate in a final. In 2009, Daley reached a career-best ranking of number one in the FINA World Aquatics Championships Diving Rankings for the 10m platform.
He won two gold medals for England at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, in the 10m synchro diving (with Max Brick) and the 10m Individual Platform competition, and won the bronze medal for Great Britain in the individual competition at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
After the 2012 Summer Olympics and a summer of great sporting interest amongst the public in the UK, television network ITV approached Daley to have a role in their new celebrity diving reality TV show Splash! Daley made his debut in the show’s premiere on 5 January 2013 as a mentor to the celebrity competitors taking part.
At the 2016 Summer Olympics, Daley and Daniel Goodfellow won a bronze medal in the men’s synchronized 10m platform. Daley also set an Olympic record score in the individual 10m platform during the first qualification round, but struggled with entries in the semi-final and did not qualify to the final.
At the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Daley, with his partner Matty Lee, on his Olympic debut, won his first Olympic gold medal, in the men’s synchronized 10m platform, winning over the Chinese competitors by 1.23 points and an overall score of 471.81
