Despatie's moved well clear of the field to take gold
Canada's Alex Despatie led from the first round to wrap up gold in the 3m springboard at the Commonwealth Games.
The 25-year-old finished 56 points clear to claim a third Commonwealth springboard title in commanding style.
England's Nick Robinson-Baker, who was fourth in the standings coming into the final round, ended fifth with 15-year-old team-mate Jack Laugher 11th.
Reuben Ross finished second behind his compatriot with Australia's Grant Nel taking the final spot on the podium.
Robinson-Baker, who had been as high as second in the standings, was still in the hunt for a medal going into the final dive but over-rotated as he attempted an inward 3½ somersault dive.
The Farnborough diver finished 21 points off bronze on a total of 435.50 and pronounced himself "delighted" with his performance.
"It is a shame not to be on the podium but that is a world-class field and their performances showed that tonight," he said.
Despatie's victory takes his haul of Commonwealth gold medals to eight since his first appearance in the 1998 Games in Kuala Lumpur.
England's Monique Gladding finished sixth in the women's 10m platform with a score of 335.90, while team-mate Tonia Couch ended a disappointing eighth.
