England's Jack Laugher doubles up with 3m springboard gold

"My entries were a little bit shaky", said Laugher, who will bid for second gold medal in Thursday's three-metre springboard.

Laugher, who will bid to improve on his Glasgow 2014 silver in the 3m individual event on Thursday, said: 'It was hard to come out here as defending champion, but I trusted myself and felt strong and confident'.

"I'm really proud of my score, first time finally competing outdoors and nearly what I got in Rio".

Jack Laugher claims a comfortable gold in the 3m springboard event at the Commonwealth Games. "I've had a pretty tough year with injuries, so to be able to have such a good result means so much to me and gives me motivation and inspiration to keep pushing through".

Pandelela and Cheong were clinical in winning the 10-metre synchro with 328.08 points from Canada's Meaghan Benfeito and Caeli McKay with fellow Malaysians Mun Yee Leong and Nur Dhabitah Sabri taking the bronze.

Pamg, in third place for much of the competition, ended up fourth with 340.20 points.

Sir Peter Heatly won three gold medals in the 1950s and was Scotland's only diving medallist - until now.
