England's Tom Daley successfully defended his Commonwealth Games title in the men's 10-metre platform final as the Glasgow 2014 diving competition concluded at Edinburgh's Royal Commonwealth Pool.

The 20-year-old from Plymouth won his third Commonwealth gold, after two in Delhi four years ago, with a score of 516.55.

The margin of victory was a huge 82.85 as Malaysia's Ooi Tze Liang finished second on 433.70 and Canada's Vincent Riendeau was third with 429.25.

Matthew Mitcham of Australia, the 2008 Olympic champion and silver medallist behind Daley four years ago, could finish only fourth with 420.00.

Daley's win took England's tally from 10 events to 10 medals, four of them gold.

Hannah Starling earlier claimed bronze in the women's three-metres springboard.
