It was the Chinese diving team's eighth gold at the tournament, but only two and half hours later, the ninth came with no surprise - another Olympic champion Wang Zongyuan defended his men's 1m springboard title to claim his third gold of the tournament.

The 20-year-old has also triumphed in 3m springboard and 3m synchronized earlier this week.

"I was very focused in the final tonight, and I was satisfied with my performance," said Wang. "I have never got such a high total score in this event."

Wang collected 493.30 points for the gold, 66.35 ahead of Britain's Jack Laugher, while Australia's Li Shixin took the bronze with 395.40. The other Chinese diver Zheng Jiuyuan ranked eighth.
