Daniel Goodfellow led an England clean sweep of the medals in the men's 3m springboard but defending champion Jack Laugher missed out on his third gold of the Games.

Jordan Houlden, 23, won silver with Laugher - who has already won 1m springboard and 3m synchronised springboard gold in Birmingham - forced to settle for third.

Goodfellow, an Olympic bronze medallist in Rio alongside Tom Daley in the men's 10m synchronised platform, clinched his second Commonwealth gold following 10m synchro success with Daley four years ago. 

Cambridge-born Goodfellow triumphed with a score of 484.45, as Laugher fell away after leading at halfway and held on for bronze.

“I’ve had a rough year and probably a few people have doubted me, so to come here and do this… I’m just really happy," Goodfellow said.

“To come here and win gold, I wouldn’t trade it.”

Laugher created a lot of splash on his fifth dive, a forward four and a half somersaults tuck, scoring just 53.2 in an overall score of 462.3.

It had been a tricky day for Laugher, who just squeezed through the preliminaries on Saturday morning after scoring zero marks for one of his dives after performing the wrong one.

“I feel like maybe a year and a half ago before the Olympics that (zero) would have completely ruined me and sent me in a bit of a spiral,” Laugher said.

“I thought that maybe today would be kind of a big turnaround, a bit of a comeback story and it kind of is in a way.

“Even though there was some massive negatives in the overall experience has been extremely positive.  When you have laid those seeds of doubt in your head, it can be quite hard. But I’ve been working with a psychologist and I’ve now got things in place that I can do.”

Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix won her second medal of the Games on Saturday night in the women’s 10m synchro platform competition.

The 17-year-old secured top spot on the podium with victory in the individual women’s 10m platform on Thursday and claimed silver alongside Eden Cheng in the synchronised event.

Spendolini-Sirieix is the daughter of First Dates star Fred Sirieix, who was also at the Aquatics Centre in Sandwell earlier in the week to witness her winning gold.

It took England's tally of diving medals to 12 - already four ahead of their Gold Coast total with two days of competition still to come.
