China’s Wang Han and Li Zheng took gold with 323.70 points, Daley and Reid silver with 308.04 points and Jennifer Abel and Francois Imbeau-Dulac of Canada bronze with 297.72.

Daley and Reid won the European title in London in May 2016 and joined Matty Lee and Lois Toulson - silver medallists in the synchronised 10m platform event - as medal winners from the World Championships at the Duna Arena.

The 21-year-old performed admirably on Friday in the 3m individual event, finishing fourth. Reid’s total of 336.70 was a big improvement on the 318.60 points she recorded to finish eighth in the same event at the Rio Olympics last year
