Tom Daley 'felt enormous pressure' before London 2012

Olympic diver Tom Daley has said he felt enormous pressure before the London 2012 games but did not admit it to anyone.

He told BBC Spotlight that he tried to remain calm before and during the Olympics but things had gone "crazy" after he won bronze.

But the 18-year-old, who also got an A in his Spanish A level, said his two brothers kept his feet on the ground by teasing him for coming third and claiming he was a "rubbish diver".
