    Daley (right) has now won synchronised 10m platform medals with three different partners

    Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow beat fellow English pair Matthew Dixon and Noah Williams to win Commonwealth Games gold in the synchronised 10m platform.

    It was a fourth Commonwealth gold medal for Daley, who has won two individual 10m titles, this event in 2010 and a silver in Glasgow in 2014.

    Daley and Goodfellow had a poor final dive but took gold on 405.81 points.

    Dixon and Williams, both 17, won silver with 399.99, with Australia’s Domonic Bedggood and Declan Stacey third.

    Scotland’s James Heatley and Lucas Thomson had five solid dives to put themselves in medal contention but a poor final dive saw them finish fifth.

    Bedggood and Stacey produced a 90-point final dive to cement at least bronze and put pressure on the English pairs.

    In contrast, Goodfellow over-rotated in his and Daley’s final dive – a forward four-and-a-half somersaults – but they had built enough of a lead to hold on to gold.

    Dixon and Williams were the last to dive but, while they were unable to knock their team-mates off top spot, they were clearly delighted with their silver medal.

    Williams and Dixon pushed Goodfellow and Daley hard but had to settle for silver
