Daley is committed - Waterfield

Olympic silver medallist Peter Waterfield defends synchronised diving partner Tom Daley against the criticism from GB performance director Alexei Evangulov, who said the youngster's media commitments were harming his Olympic medal prospects.

Evangulov also compared Daley to former Russian tennis prodigy Anna Kournikova, who he said was "still in the celebrity news but she never achieved her full potential".

The duo came seventh at the Diving World Cup and Waterfield says their failure to win a medal was down to lack of preparation time not media distractions.
