Tom Daley is expected to take his place at this weekend’s qualifiers for the World Championships after yesterday attending his father’s funeral.

Daley is due to begin the first stage in the defence of his 10metre platform world title at the Championships in Leeds this weekend.

The 17-year-old’s presence at the meet was in doubt after his father Robert lost his long battle with brain cancer less than a fortnight ago.
