Tom Daley helped the Great Britain mixed team win the first gold medal of the Diving World Cup in Berlin.

Daley, Jack Laugher, Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix and Mew Jensen finished top with 461.15 points.

Germany were second with 430.75 points and Italy in third spot on 419.60.

Britain led after each round of the event, with the 29-year-old Daley - an Olympic champion in Tokyo - performing two synchro dives and one solo on the 10m platform.

He achieved the highest score of the event with 91.80 for his reverse three-and-a-half on the 10m.

"For us, it's about trying to maximise the weaker categories, which tend to be back and reverse, so Jack did a very solid back three-and-a-half dive in that first round," said Daley.

"I think that really helped set the standard. Everyone else was really solid and held it together."
