Daley made honorary freeman of Plymouth


Olympic gold-winning diver Tom Daley has been made an honorary freeman of his home city of Plymouth, Devon – the youngest person ever to receive the award.

Councillor­s voted to confer the title on him to recognise his achievemen­ts in diving.

Daley and diving partner Matty Lee won Britain’s first Olympic gold medal in the men’s synchronis­ed 10 metre dive at the Tokyo Games. Daley also won bronze in the sole 10m event.

Daley said he was “delighted” to accept the award. He added that “to be one of such a select few Plymothian­s is such an honour”.
