Diver Daley wins third BBC award

Daley wins 2010 Young Sports Personality

Devon teenage diver Tom Daley has been awarded the BBC Young Sports Personality title for the third time.

The 16-year-old became the second youngest-ever double Commonwealth champion in Delhi, winning the 10m individual and synchro competitions.

Daley beat Olympic champion Matt Mitcham to win the individual contest and easily took the synchro title alongside diving partner Max Brick.

The world champion also won the Young Personality crown in 2007 and 2009.

"This comes very unexpected, I've got so many people to thank," he said when accepting the award.

"I'd like to thank my family, grandparents, Max Brick my diving partner, and my strength and conditioning coaches.

"It's been a tough year but to go to the Commonwealth Games as my main event of the year, I was very happy to come away with two gold medals so thank you very much."
