A teenager has been arrested by police investigating abuse of Team GB diver Tom Daley on Twitter.
After coming fourth in the men's synchronised 10m platform diving event on Monday, the 18-year-old from Plymouth received a message telling him he had let down his father, Rob. Rob Daley died in May 2011 from brain cancer.
A 17-year-old boy was arrested at a guest house in the Weymouth area on suspicion of malicious communications. Dorset Police said they acted after being contacted by a member of the public at about 22:30 BST on Monday.
A spokesman was unable to confirm whether the arrest was specifically over the tweets to Daley or subsequent Twitter conversations with other users.
Daley responded to the tweet by posting: "After giving it my all...you get idiot's sending me this..." The user later posted a tweet apologising for the comment.
