Double Commonwealth diving champion Tom Daley says winning two gold medals in Delhi was "an amazing experience" after coming back from a triceps injury.

The 16-year-old grabbed gold in the 10m synchro and individual 10m platform, in which he scored a perfect dive.

He said: "When I was spinning around I knew that it could've been good... But when I saw that every judge gave me a perfect 10 I was very happy."

Tom hurt his arm in August, so he couldn't defend his European title.

Tom's dad usually joins him at events to cheer him on, but he couldn't make it to the Commonwealth Games because he's not well.

"It was weird not having my dad there but I knew he'd be watching on TV and I'd be speaking to him every day," said Tom.

The 16-year-old world champion rang his dad straight after winning his first gold in Delhi and said all his family were in the front room cheering.

Now the Games are over, it's back to school for Tom, but he still sees the bright side: "It's only one week left until half term!"
