Great Britain's Jack Laugher won gold in the 3m springboard at the FINA/NVC Diving World Series in Canada.

Laugher, who won Great Britain's first Olympic diving gold medal with Chris Mears in the synchronised 3m springboard in Rio last summer, scored 567.15 points from his six dives.

In Windsor, he finished nearly 40 points ahead of China's Xie Siyi, whose second place earned him overall victory in the four-leg World Series.

Laugher finished in second place.

He won the first leg of the event in Beijing, but a second-placed finish in Guangzhou, China followed by fourth in Kazan, Russia, cost him overall success.

On Friday, Laugher and Mears finished seventh in the synchronised 3m springboard final.
