Tom Daley

Olympic medallist Tom Daley has announced he will be heading up the England diving squad for the Commonwealth Games – from the heady heights of a rollercoaster.

Tom, 20, is seen here on SheiKra, the breathtaking coaster at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida http://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=JelabkC1J7Y

“I am really excited to have been selected,” says Tom as he hurtles up to 70mph, 200ft above the theme and animal park.

He added that he thinks Glasgow will be an amazing host and put on a great show. And then he cheekily tweeted: “I think this is the way forward for announcements.”
