Laughing off retirement; sport shorts DIVING.

JACK Laugher used to vow he would quit diving once he realised his dream of Olympic gold, but one year out from Tokyo 2020 he maintains he is more motivated than ever to add to his historic triumph in Rio.

At the age of just 24, Laugher is already considered something of elder statesman within the GB set-up, and now has the additional task of guiding his new team-mate Dan Goodfellow in the synchro discipline.

Laugher told PA: "I always said if I won an Olympic gold medal I would retire on top, but when you're 21 and you achieve your dream it's very different. If you look back at the athlete I was three years ago, I've completely evolved."
