Australia’s Matthew Mitcham and Domonic Bedggood have won gold in the men’s 10m platform synchronised diving, edging out England and Malaysia.

The pair brought out the big dive when it mattered, chalking up 88.56 points with a back 2 1/2 somersault 2 1/2 twist, which saw them overtake Malaysia’s Ooi Tze Liang and Chew Yiwei on the final jump.

Malaysia had led the pack after five dives, only to see England’s Tom Daley and James Denny scored a huge 95.46 on their final dive to surge into second place.
